A concerned citizen called the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office to report that a Loxahatchee man was storing a cougar in his freezer. The man had permits to possess cougars and other wildlife on his property. Florida Fish and Wildlife Officials inspect facilities that have permits twice a year. When officers came to inspect they did not find any signs of cruelty or neglect.
When an animal dies at one of the facilities it is not necessary for the owner to let anyone know, and can do with the body what they deem appropriate. This Loxahatchee man deemed keeping the cougar in his freezer appropriate. From The Palm Beach Post .
