Yes, it is news to those of us who care about wildlife. It's not as if it were a prairie dog or something; mountain lions are a big deal and are becoming more and more rare around here.

Was it a female? Someone needs to check this out and see if she had any cubs.

Pearl, while they are being squeezed by humans in the westen suburbs, overall populations of the cougar in Colorado have been climbing steadily for years, and in fact, it is still legal to hunt them.

Its only news because it is rare for one to be hit by a car, and it could be dangerous now that it is injured.

Sounds to me like someone wanted a cougar hide. How do they know it survived and got away on its own?

I seem to remember hearing about another mountain lion getting hit in the same vacinity about a month ago.

I would like to mount that kitty! Hitting one is very rare.
