  • Cougar Menu

    Posted by Dan from Madison on April 10th, 2008 (All posts by )

    As a follow up to my posts about urban wildlife I am reading and reviewing a suggested book, “The Beast in the Garden” by David Baron.  I hope to have my review done in a few weeks.  But for now, lets look at a cougar menu, from page 51 – you may even be able to use this as your quote of the day:

    They have been known to eat grasshoppers, snails, mice, rats, lizards, turtles, snakes, squirrels, rabbits, bats, gophers, weasels, prairie dogs, skunks, beavers, raccoons, opossums, armadillos, marmots, porcupines, turkeys, chickens, geese, grouse, badgers, foxes, bobcats, coyotes, bighorn sheep, domestic sheep, pigs, goats, cows, horses, elk, moose, alligators, bison, bears, and other cougars.  But a mountain lion’s favorite meal, by far, is venison.

    One more, the occasional human.  Ah, diversity.

      Don’t they know that the diet list is supposed to end with “and especially rabbit!”

      Or is that the tasmanian devil?
