He's lookin' serious... I used to have a Maine Coon who would get that look.

Looks like you shot through a window?

Either a transparent panel or the cage grill was very close to me. The Toronto Zoo isn't always photographer friendly!

It looks like you were on his radar... what happened after the shot?

I had noticed the cougar kept walking the same path over and over again so I was waiting for it. I doubt it even noticed it had been photographed as it just kept walking the path. Rather sad to have a wild animal caged up just for my amusement when it should be roaming free.

Nice shot::..

I do agree with your caged comment but
this awesome creature is making a comeback a lil north of you in the Temagami region again and was ignorance that made them disappear from the north in the 1st place and thanks to some of these zoos, they are being introduced back into the north once again, I am originally from that area

Cougars are doing well (and Bobcats) in south central NM, probably all over. There are plenty of deer and smaller game for them. A nearby alpaca grower isn't too thrilled to see them, but it was a treat several years ago to spot one at our place getting a drink of water very early in the morning. Sometimes a zoo will display an animal that for some reason or another would not survive in the wild.
