    When did James turn into such a scared fellow? He used to be the most chill of all the talk show hosts when it comes to animals..

    There is one animal that does scare me on this, and that is the cougar. Where I live they are "not native and not here" by DNR and police, which I say BS to. I have lived in rural and country areas most of my life and am familiar with native animal sounds as I have hunted for years, and one night I heard this sound that sent chills down my spine as I walked out to the end of my porch...It was the deep slow purr like growl of a big cat, I went back in and and googled cougar sounds as I knew that would be the only possible big cat that is big enough to make it in the US. Sure enough it was an exact match, I contacted DNR and the police and they pretty much laughed at me.... I found trail cam pictures of a cougar 20 miles away on a hiking trail warning hikers to be wary from the DNR, so I went back and told them there was one that close... Their response was " so what, it would not come down this far", so I explained most cougars can travel over 20 miles hunting (research I did) and the trail cam was within that distance, so it could be the same cougar and they did not care... Luckily no one has been hurt by it, and it may have been killed as one was hit by a car 1 mile from my dad's place a few weeks later. But still the sheer ignorance of local authorities that just deny my hearing it and trail cam photos within it's range, ticks me off...

      I do think they are beautiful animals, I like cats...Yet anything that can kill and eat a deer that weighs as much as me... Well I do not want to face off against, and needless to say I did not go out at night without a super bright flashlight and a 45 caliber 1911, with hollow points in my hand for months.

    Ron Burgundy Meets a Cougar, Alligator & Skunk
    This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
    You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.

      Yes, but not "rip you apart with their claws and eat you"-lethal. More like "will destroy your natural habitat and/or hunt you to extinction for dumb reasons"-lethal.

    They bring in these zookeepers and don’t let them talk at all. They’re trying to get a message across to dumb ignorant people and you hosts become the irony of just that.
