Well, now we know for sure,but he'still a big cat.This lion has been appearing in emails throughout this year as having been killed in 17 different States and 2 different Provinces. It was hit by a F350 on Highway 64 between Williams and Valle, Arizona, and killed by DPS Officer Jason Ellico who responded to the 911 call (he's the guy in the picture).

In Kal-eee Forni-Ah the three S's apply for dealing with a cougar in your back yard. "shoot, shovel, shut up."Yes a few unlucky souls have been killed especially in Orange County. There is at least one running around in the valley behind my property - never have seen it and the 120 pound English Fox Hound is still alive and running wild so there must be enough game for now to keep my dog alive.
