Big title and evening news announcement in the French media, followed by a torrent of popular emotion, of course. The cougar (exactly the same animal we call “mountain lion” in the west and “puma” in South America) is confirmed extinct, they say.
I guess it couldn’t have been a cougar, a mountain lion, that stole two goats across an eight-foot fence about a year ago near Santa Cruz. Some alley cat! You bet!
If the stupidity of the North American eco-sensitive makes you ill, you are lucky not to know another European language. It’s much worse over-there.
