Un autre puma

Un autre puma a ete arrete  en pleine ville dans ma ville de Santa Cruz aujourd’hui. Je me dis qu’il a ete “arrete”  puisque ce sont les flics qui l’ont capture (avec des flechette sedatives).

Je ne sais pas vraiment de quoi il etait soupconne, peut-etre d’avoir traverse en dehors des cloux, ou bien, de vol a la tire.

J’ai toute un histoire pleine d’histoires de pumas (“mountain lions”) sur ce blog:  “Les Pumas de Becons-les Bruyeres.”

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

    It’s good to know that you still have pumas in California. I have crossed the Florida Everglades 2 times during the April month and despite many traffic panels alongside the 41 highway telling he drivers to pay attention to the ‘panthers’ (the name they use in Florida for cougar), I did not had the chance to see one of them and furthermore to take it in picture. I consequently concluded that the only ‘cougars’ still alive in Florida are mature women looking for young lovers! Your novel fills me with joy.

    • Tige d’airain: There are many cougars in California (pumas, mountain lions, same as Florida panthers). They are not “left.” Rather, their number is increasing. The young one that was captured in Santa Cruz recently, was probably just seeking territory because the usual mountain sites for those animals are overpopulated.

      The idea that humans are destroying Nature is another collectivist conceit and lie. Three examples: There are now enough wolves in France to threaten flocks. There were none in your childhood (and mine). There is at least one resident seal in the Rance river in St Malo France. When I was a child, no one had ever seen a seal in Brittany. There are salmons in the Loire, the largest river in France. When I was a child….

      Human cougars are augmenting too but it’s not a population increase, just behavioral change!
      It’s an indirect result of feminism. The more passive the males, the more active the females have to be.
