Come on, PAGuy, we are counting on you to get us some great pics. You have everything else out there including boxing reindeer Laughing

You must have a few cats floating around that want their picture taken. Wink

There are no eastern cougars left in PA. As soon as the US F&W service de-lists the Eastern Cougar.... we'll see if I can get a picture of a mountain lion at "Cat Alley".

I'll post some more bobcat pictures to "hold you over", ok? Very Happy

Very Happy Pa Guy always has great pictures to be proud of, just as long as he leaves his 35 mm at home. He has a tendancy to get to close for comfort with those animals. So we always keep a Idea for him.

Isn' that exotic animal auction held in Mount Hope Ohio twice a year? I can't believe that they are allowed to sell Big cats such as cougars as well as bears, coyotes, kangaroos, zebras, etc... They are allowed to sell them, yet most of the people who buy them aren't allowed to own them. Interesting paradox. This exotic stuff ends up running free in New York, PA, Ohio and other states. I have been called out to dart some pretty unusual hoof stock in the past years as well.

That sale is held 4 times a year, but latest regs don't allow interstate transport of large carnivores. This was done to keep un-permitted individuals from ducking their state laws by buying these animals out of state. (About time!) The stupid part is that only the buyer is held responsible in a transaction-the seller doesn't even have to ask if the buyer has a USDA license Evil or Very Mad Typical of regulations done by committee-no common sense. In NY, the only wild canid that is legal is a fennec fox-they were excepted because a relative of one of the sponsoring lawmakers raises them! Go figure Rolling Eyes (Oh-btw, MT hope can't sell primates, cats, or bears over 20lbs anymore-somebody got bit by a juvenile bear and the insurance company put the kibosh on that in a hurry.)

Yes, but who is watching if there is or is not interstate transport of the large carnivores? Who watches you get in your car and drive away? And does that mean that more large carnivores are then staying in Ohio- to be released by their owners when they get too big?

USDA nowrequires you to present a copy of your USDA license to the seller/auction house-granted, its not much, but its a start. Ohio is starting to limit the ownership of these animals also. No new permits are given to anyone within 50 miles of a GMA, and as the cities redefine their boundaries, less and less area is available. You can't stop it all, but some are trying. BTW, animal chores were no fun yesterday Exclamation We got a foot of snow in 4 hrs! How's up your way?

Hey you live in the snow belt, you have to put up with it. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

It is just very cold here, 15* this morning, kinda cold for Dec.

with all of the new regulations being enforced, won't that create a few more releases?? That is what happened in England when they changed the regs.

Anything is possible with irresponsible people-and there are plenty of them. I saw a cougar in PA years ago that was kept in a chicken wire pen! And the owner said the cat had gotten out on several occasions! Evil or Very Mad

Bearman, lots of Snow in the Southerm Tier in Western New York! Been skiing for a couple weeks now! Snowmobilers are getting restless because they can't run until hunting season is over.
