I've recently learned there are cougars lurking amongst the trees, as proven by the recent removal and messy consumption of a goat on a nearby farm. This is making my off-road forest running slightly challenging, or perhaps better said, frightening.
On a slightly different note, the appearance of the cougar is greatly adding to my study and appreciation of THE FOREST. Experiencing the untamed possibly deadly forest versus the my usual haunt of the city park has added a world of insight when doing the research of slavic mythologies/folklore, which is part of my practice as an artist. - Pat
