    Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig.

    Wow. Hope the injuries aren't serious/long term, but it's a pretty bonkers answer to "How'd you get that scar?", even if it was only an 80lb cat.

    Dude must have had beaucoup d'adrenaline for sure. Great thing he turned and saw it coming. Once he got it off his arm, I wonder if the cat tried to run away, or what. It must have had quite an "oh $$$t" moment.

    I've been very close to one. They are very intimidating for sure. My two most dangerous days in the mountains, In a avalanche, being stalked by a Lion. I'll take the avalanche any day.
