Have You Seen This? Confused mountain lion

This mountain lion in Idaho is clearly two things in this video: hungry and confused. I've been there.

CONFUSION, Idaho — When I get hungry, I tend to get hangry and confused.

The smallest things begin to irritate me and I can get a little mean. I also don't think clearly, I start believing Spaghetti-O's are a viable food choice and I may even have conversations about politics with Care Bears.

So, the Care Bear thing has only happened once and that may have had something to do with my 100-plus degree fever, but I do remember being hungry and Share Bear refused to share his rainbow sprinkled cupcake, which I found infuriatingly ironic.

I feel like I've gone off topic. All I'm getting at is that I feel for this mountain lion in Idaho.

According to the video description, this happened back in November and the person filming wrote, "I was sitting in a tree stand hunting whitetail when I noticed a mountain lion stalking in on my deer decoy."

This mountain lion and I have a lot in common. He was hungry and this statuesque deer reeking of plastic seemed like a great meal. The big cat, however, gets close, becomes even more confused and then ultimately walks away hungry. Sorry, big guy. Better luck next time.

Check out the video and I'm going to go find some food because I haven't eaten for like 45 minutes and I feel that confusion and irritability setting in.
