Dirty old men!
From the Urban Dictionary: Cougar
(see also hunt, prowl, corner, pounce). Noun. A 35+ year old female who is on the "hunt" for a much younger, energetic, willing-to-do-anything male. The cougar can frequently be seen in a padded bra, cleavage exposed, propped up against a swanky bar in San Francisco (or other cities)waiting, watching, calculating; gearing up to sink her claws into an innocent young and strapping buck who happens to cross her path. "Man is cougar's number one prey"

I didnt know the urban dictionary meaning until yesterday. Sounds like a lot more fun than the zoo animal.

Couldnt - the thing was jumping 6' high fences from yard to yard and acting erratic, and charging the police. I think they shot it from a safe distance.

Maybe, the complete autopsy report isnt in yet, - preliminary report said that the Cougar was wiild and not domesticated.

Snow Leopard 1 up, 4 downUnlike the older, more abundant cougar, the snow leopard is rarely seen. Snow leopards are those truly gorgeous, head-turning young females that seem to hang out at Starbucks, the trendy nightclubs, the gym and your fantasies.
