    Now the richwooders.com photo looks fake too 😉

    It raises the issue, with today’s technology how can you trust any picture, especially digital?

  3. Lesley responds:

    What a beauty!

  4. Bob Michaels responds:

    My pet Mountain Lion is missing

    In regard to trusting pictures, Adobe either has, or is in the process of adding this type of functionality to its software, or to a new software package. The software, I believe, will have the ability to tell if a picture is an original or if it has been altered. This came on the heels of people selling doctored images to Reuters.

    OK so then I linked to the earlier Minnesota mountain lion capture in Willmar, my mom’s hometown. Most think that was a pet — I disagree. In 1993 I was with 3 friends from U of Wisconsin-Madison, my ornithology class. We were entering the woods behind my parent’s house in the St. Croix River Valley, just north of Stillwater — halfway to Taylors Falls.

    I heard a loud thumping of several legs running. Knowing it wasn’t deer I looked up and saw the tan coast of a big cat sprint off into the woods — only some 20 feet from us. Unfortunately noone else got a good look but I knew it was a mountain lion.

    Later that day my huge cat, from Alaska, a Norwegian Forest Cat, that I found in the outback, was, cowering under the middle of the deck, shivering, afraid to come out. His behavior was completely unprecedented — except for when we first found him under my cabin, just south of Denali, in an area rife with bear.

    From our viewpoint, the puma in the richwooders site is considerably more greyish then the brown coated cat in Wisconsin. If it was altered, so was the position of tail.

    In today’s society, thanks to disbelieving scientists supporting actions of critical skeptics, every item of proof has become suspect as fraudulent acts, which allows science to toss out perfect substantial proof, that in 99% of cases is NOT fake, but factual evidence.
