Recent reporting is even suggesting that this was actually a Nigerian Cougar and that the man paid the cougar several hundred dollars to stage the attack.

Everybody was wrong after all. It was only an orphaned cougar!(for those that don't know: one an the same) https://www.yahoo.com/news/mountain-...023521656.html

What is even more spectacular is how the news has spun this. A basic simple story and for a week now you can't even get the real facts!!
