Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
Not very happy about being in that trap it appears
One has to be careful about that. I've known a couple of folks who have released an animal like this back into the wild, only to be attacked before they leave. Beautiful, but deadly.
A couple of those pelts put together would make a fine coat for a ginger gal...freckles, you know?
Somehow I didn't feel like giving him a pet and saying, "nice kitty." He is beautiful, though. Hope he got released somewhere far away from people!
If I was releasing that thing back into the woods, one hand would be on the door, the other on my Sig Sauer .45
