Come on! Your joshing me!

You can't eat cougar, can you? Nobody eats cats??? Recycled venison doesn't seem appetizing.

Seriously, the way this Obama economy is going, I may need this info badly in a few months. The neighbor has a large, well fed tabby that would fit purr-fectly on my grill.

A cougar skin coat brings to mind Willie Nelson or Elton John.

Our local “Fur Bearer Specialist” with the state game department insist Cougar (Mountain Lion) is very good eating.

The meat is described as “Fine grain” and mildly flavored.

They are large mammals, just like the deer they eat.
I know several people who do eat Cougar, we have an open season on them here, but you do need a tag.

A coat seems more a practical use to me than a wall covering or fragile rug.
Winter hides would be best.

Wolf coats are good too, maybe we can harvest some in the lower 48 soon.

FYI, house-cats are edible, but not palatable, the meat turns blue on cooking.
As some German U-Boat crews learned when they bought skinned “Rabbit” from Dutch children during W.W. II.
