  1. Josh Pearson says:

    Those of us in Rockwall have been dealing with this for quite some time.

    Nothing like getting the frantic call at work from your wife who just saw a “big freaking huge cat” (her exact words) walking through the park behind the house. Foot prints and additional sightings and pictures confirmed it was a mountain lion.

    Yet another reason to keep the loaded .38 in the nightstand…

  2. Jack E. Jett says:

    Is the couger jewish or catholic?

    If you refresh FrontBurner every minute or so, you might have noticed I put up a post on this exact topic, and then immediately took it down when I saw Tim had beaten me to it.

    Why did I put it up? Because Eric sent me the link. So, to recap: Eric is on vacation, and he is still all over this.

    Also spotted at Bennigan’s in Las Colinas and 214 at the Palomar.

    I thouhgt the Cougar’s only hung out at Martini Park…

    Tim… Has the Prius put you off your snark game? This would have been the perfect segue into a link to your cover story on cougers, and how you guys beat the DMN to the punch.

    Haha… “footprints”… as in, like, a size seven Manolo Blahnik…?

  8. El Rey says:

    I think we should round up all of the pit bulls in Dallas and the Park cities and let ’em loose in Coppell…
    – I’m just kidding.

    Leave the cat alone and it will only eat the weakest animals and children in Coppell. The nature lover in me is saying Mother Nature / God sent the cougar to cull the weakest from the herd. It is called a “food chain” and “survival of the fittest” for a reason. If you find yourself being chased by a cougar, remember you do not have to be the fastest runner; you just better not be the slowest…

    does it look like this

    Billusa99, follow the link to “Eric.” With the money the Prius is saving me at the pump I am doubling down on Snark Co. (SNRK). Heavily invested. So don’t you worry.

  11. j.d.w... says:

    Zac, Tim – I had both you guys beat. Put me on the payroll?

  12. publicnewssense says:

    Texas mountain lions are known to seek out the Crimean Woodcock as recently seen in Dallas.

  13. monkey god says:

    They should be called Texas Big Hill Lions.

  14. Zac Crain says:

    Well played as always, j.d.w. Your starting salary is a hearty handshake. The third Friday of every month you get an “attaboy.” Once a year, a solid hair mussing.

    At least that’s what they pay me.

  15. Billusa99 says:

    Doooh! (slapping self on forehead)

    Good on ya, Tim!
