(1) The "ministry" has released cougars in our area....tough to argue agains b/c the people spreading it reject logic and common sense and they personally know a guy who personally knows a guy who kissed a girl who is related to the guy who works with the guy who saw the marked ministry vehicle towing a canister with the cougar in it.....b/c the government can keep a secret and nobody was worried about the potential for liability in the government....and as a cover, they ran a 20 year study, spending tax payer dollars trying to establish whether or not there are cougars in Ontario...it was all a distraction....

(2) There are wolves here in midwestern Ontario...eyewitnesses have seen them.....

I suppose anything is possible but....then why can't I get anyone to believe Bigfoot lives in my bush??? I've had a beer with him.

You had a beer with Bigfoot?
A single beer?
I've heard she puts away half a dozen beers before
you can blow off your foam.

Don't take your guard down Axeman - nobody has busted that myth about Cougar, so why take a chance.

@thouc...yeah that occurred to me a fraction of a second after posting...I just hoped I wouldn't get called on it lol

@ dinusaur...It took Rick Rosatte (biologist with mnr who was in charge of cougar study) over 20 years to conclude that there were cougars in ON....I figure he had the inside track....either that or that was one fine effort in job preservation...

@ shortsighted...she finished all the beer before I could finish one....and why would you blow the foam off? That's where all the nutrition is...

@ JW mills....I got nothing....I tried....
