The big man wasnt necessarily out of place on the sunny afternoon walking down main street. His large pet on a thick leather leash was. Its not often that you see a cougar nonchalantly walking down the sidewalk. I watched him from across the street. Most folks ducked in to a store before he walked by them. A few even crossed the street to my side. They gave him plenty of room to walk his pet. I decided to go up to him and ask him why he was walking a dangerous wild animal down the street. “Meow,” is all he replied.
