Not sure if this has been posted yet and I don't know the story behind it but WOW! This picture is fantastic and if you live out west with the lions, it has got to give you the creeps.

Yup, it's been here. I posted it and was told it was here before and that it is a photoshop picture. Don't know if it's true or not...still pretty wild, though...

At least a 3 year old email spammed pic - and felt by most to be photoshopped as well.

Reported to be in probably 40 different states - all by "reliable" sources.

I dont believe it's photoshopped. I've seen somewhere where there is a sequence of pictures. This the first one, then the previous pictures are of just the cat because the flash bumped the deer, and the cat just hung out.

There's no way a cougar would stalk to that short of a distance. They can go 0-40mph in 50 feet, and cover 45 feet with one leap, so why get that close?? Still eerie, though.

Sorry...it was e-mailed to me and I thought it was cool. I must have missed the earlier threads. I gotta say, though, if it's photoshopped, kudos to the guy that did it because it sure looks like a great pic to me.

Yeah, it's made its rounds for the past couple of years. Believed, by most, to be photoshopped. And I am one of those who believe it. Cool picture nonetheless.

I would have to agree. Hell, 2-3 more feet and he would be stepping on the deer's heels.

Maybe he's just going to roar real loud and scare that poor little deer till he pees himself and they'll have a good laugh afterwards.:banana:

Photoshoped. I've seen all three photos. One of just the Deer, one of just the Mtn. Lion, and this one with the two overlaid on top of each other. On the first two the date stamp was very clear. Not so with the overlay.
