Most baby mammals will imprint on a human if that's what they meet. The problems come when the "parent" figure becomes superfluous; remember Travis the Chimp. He was warm and cuddly until he wasn't.

I was just kidding. I have no desire to cuddle a baby mountain lion.


And wasn't Travis high on Xanax or something?

People are so quick to assume it was a full-sized adult, and that the event was an epic made-for-movie drama. It makes for sensationalistic journalism and excited giddiness for the average bored American. Get the information correct before moving forward with thoughts and emotions.

It's dumb for joggers to be in that area. That's the bigger lesson to take away. Maybe the next story will be of a vanished jogger, and will truly serve as a warning for those fools.

Also the woman who successfully fought the State of Florida to keep her pet alligator. I actually wanted to be sympathetic to her cause, except that when doing interviews she kept cradling the alligator like a baby and kissing it. She seems totally oblivious to the danger the alligator poses.

You have to feel sorry for someone for whom "all they have is their animal. I hope I, ask a taxpayer, don't fund the moron's emergency room bills.

Come on think McFly think. That’s ridiculous. Big feet. He can’t have big feet. He would be kicking himself in his humongous balls if he had big feet. No my friend he would need small feet.

The only reason you would win is the cat was a baby and had no fighting experience. A 35 pounds of adult wild bobcat would tear your azz up. Humans are ill prepared to fight animals. Christ anyone can drown a puppy. Try fighting off a pit bull. People are easily torn up by animals. We have absolutely no built in weapons. We can take a lot of punishment as far as physical damage but for the most part we have no offensive weapons

What's going on here??...

This thing started out as an 80 pound Mountain Lion and has suddenly shrunk down to 35 to 40 pounds and changed species from ML to Bobcat?? And also being described as a Kitten??

What's to follow here? Will it wind up being a stray 10 pound Himalayan cat escaped from a local shelter, or a 5 pound Himalayan kitten??
What’s going on? It’s the internet.
It’s like that hot chick you are gonna go on a date with this Friday night and she posted a pic on please.hammer.me.on.our.date.com from 15 years ago. But hey look at the bright side she’s wearing the same outfit from 15 years ago. It’s just most of her is now spilling out at the seams.

Wow. I'd be shaking in my boots.
