Dark Cougar Killed, Questions Linger

A rather dark-colored cougar was recently killed in the mountains of far West Texas near El Paso. READ MORE HERE at Texas Cryptid Hunter. I used to live in West Texas and can tell you it is rugged, sparsely-populated, and inhospitable. Under the best of circumstances, cougars are hard to spot. They are reclusive and generally avoid people. Given how rare it is to see one with normal coloring, and factoring in how dark this one is by comparison, it isn't hard to imagine that even darker (perhaps black?) animals are hidden away in some rocky alcove high up some mountain cliff in the middle of the desert. The odd become then quite remote of properly documenting their existence.

We had some trap camera video of a cougar in AZ and no one thought they ever made it up here. You just don't know what from Central America could be cruising around and perhaps breeding with the population and creating the occasional dark one.

IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE OTHER WAY AND THE AROUND THE TWO LEGGED BEAST SHOULD HAVE BEEN DINNER.

it should have been the other way around and the two-legg beast on display.
