A hunter mountain lion recently crossed paths with a rare cat:
#Cosmoread: Additional tooth and a hunter mountain lion with white whiskers above his head, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game reported.
Before running off into the hills on private property Hunter, Hunter Mountain lion attacks a dog in the December 30, 2015 Preston, a town in southern Idaho near the young man saw the ,hunter mountain lion was spotted, the department said in a statement.
With the help of hounds, the hunter mountain lion tracked for the first 3 hours a legally harvest hunter mountain lion. The dog survived the first attack, the department said but the hunter mountain lion was far from an ordinary cat, found Hunter. Rising out of the mustache-covered tissue on the left side of his forehead fully formed was canine teeth and fur, the department said.
It is caused by abnormal growth, but is being offered two ideas, is not clear. Maybe the tooth died in the womb, but absorbed by the remains of a conjoined twin fetus was alive, said organism Or, perhaps abnormality is a Teratoma tumor; Sometimes the hunter mountain lion’s teeth, hair, and even fingers and toes are filled with people. Tumors found in the early stage of embryonic tissue. They usually are benign and do not spread to other parts of the body, researchers told Live Science last year.
These tumors are uncommon in humans and animals, but cases still pop up in the medical literature. For example, an Indiana woman’s brain contained hair, bones and teeth, a Teratoma tumor, Live Science reported in April. In another case, a 4-month-old infant brain in Maryland teeth completely, contained a Teratoma was formed, but the surgeon was able to remove the growth.
However, the exact cause of the abnormality of the mountain lion is anyone’s guess, the department said.
“Idaho Fish and Game biologists before the Southern region has never seen anything like this particular pathology,” the department said in a statement.
Hunter harvest Fish and Game Department reported, and a conservation officer, hunter had a valid hunting license and verify that tag. Authorities also killed the mountain lion and how the information is recorded, and a tooth pulled feed analysis, the department said. But hunters for the animal to the Department for further analysis was not necessary.
Mountain lion in Idaho is a native game species. “His elusiveness and care, human encounters with mountain lions, because rare,” but the department said.
However, during the winter cold and snow mountain lions, prompting measures to reduce upgrade cat prey animals, which includes deer and wild turkey, avoid, rural or urban communities to pursue their prey in residential areas. When this happens, sometimes people mountain lions, have run-ins with livestock and pets.
Just like elk and mule deer, mountain lions can be legally hunted in Idaho. But only during certain seasons in designated areas, big cats, can be run, and the hunter owns a proper license and tag, the department said.
Typically, a mountain lion hunter can harvest per year. They hound hunter proper permits, so hunter mountain lion can use dogs, the department said.
