Replying to LO11977 --

Ben, I have to ask. What did you end up doing with the cougar in the
first half of the story?

[Host's Note: FWIW, I've had a couple of other msgs with the same
question... Ben, you can't leave us hanging here! ...Rick]

>What would you do?
>The cougar began to crawl towards us in a hurry. It was clearly going to
>attack. What would you do? It is illegal to kill a cougar without a

>If you don't someone (probably you) gets attacked. Your finger is on the
>trigger. The cougar is in your sights. What do you do?
