Over the last few weeks a photo has been circulating on the internet of a huge cougar taken by a hunter. The Trail Daily Times  has a story about the cat and the hunter, which is apparently not the fellow holding the cat. The cougar weighed 160 pounds and was taken in southern British Columbia with the help of hounds.
The photo of a Trail hunter straining to lift a massive cougar has generated controversy and as the photo spiders its way through cyberspace, heated debate follows, which is the last thing the man holding the cat was looking for. The photo was taken after local cougar hunters tracked and shot a 160-pound cougar in the Pend d’Oreille and was subsequently posted online by a friend of one of the hunters.
