had a customer come in last night and tell me about a cougar that he'd seen on friday night, He'd won a big jackpot around 11pm friday and decided to take a cab instead of riding the shuttle back to the postal training center, well he said that when he got ready to leave, he called a cab company in norman and was quoted $80 buck to come get him and take him back to norman, well he decides he'd rather walk( with 7Gs in his pocket), he didn't realize that its 16miles away, thought it was only about 5 or 6, but he starts walking, said he walked about 5 miles when he hears something rustling in the brush, so he starts walking faster, figures he made it about a mile more when the noise starts getting real close to him, he said he picked up a rock and throws it in the general direction and hears something run toward him, so he pulls out a little flash light and theres the cat, about 25 ft. from him, said it looked to be maybe 40lbs knee high and five ft long, well he says they stare at eachother for about a minute when he yells as loud as he can, said it startled the cat and it ran one direction and he took off in the other, I asked him if he was sure it was a cougar and not a bob cat, and he told me it had rounded ears and a tail about two ft long and it was "damn sure a cougar and not a little fucking bob cat", dude made real sure not to miss the shuttle last night, take it for what its worth cause this dudes from new york state and how the northerners can make a cougar outta a house cat.

Sounds like one of the postal workers from the NCED! Some of those boys are pretty sharp. But this guy sounds like a real tightwad.
The cougars do come out at night, more so than in the daylight.
But there ain't no cougars in Oklahoma!

this dudes down here for two weeks every other month, and all his freetime is spent at the casino, don't know if he's the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he's the one teaching the course.

Big tall boy, looks like Grizzly Adams?
As far as cougars go, they have found tracks of one at Liberty Lake, SE of Guthrie. Also a BLACK BEAR was seen in the area by two different residents. Wasn't no bigfoot, but was definitely a bear.
And the DWC keeps telling us "There ain't no bears or cougars in Central Oklahoma!"

the area he described was around 84th and hi-way 9, its heavly wooded and few houses, its also only about 1 1/2- 2 miles from the lake.

dudes about my height, 180lbs, green eyes, light complexion, caucasion and looks like a greasy biker, salt a pepper beard, glasses and deep resounding voice, and a very big tipper, I can't accept tips since I'm gaming commission, but the cashiers, beer girls, food service and security were happy, and he said he isn't ever going to walk back to norman again.

If I'm not mistaken he is teaching the lock smith classes for safes, etc at the NCED.
I can't remember his name right now.

man you'd be surprised at the amount of people that bitch and raise hell about the cost of a cab out here, people bitch about having to buy booze and food, they always saying they don't have to pay for this or that in Vegas, and we're alway telling them they ain't in Vegas, and some of them come in and lose every dime they have and want to make up stories as to how they hit a jackpot on the last spin and the machine didn't give it to them, but the techs just pull up the history and show them, and if they still want to argue, I'm called, I give them a greivence form to fill out and I tell them to fill it out honestly, cause it will go to the tribal gaming comissioners for review and if theirs any kind of fraudulent statements then it will be turned over to the feds, most decide quickly that they made a mistake and they didn't win anything, but a few have do have honest complaints and I try to go outta my way to help them, but it still has to go before the commissioners and I have to inform the customer that the commission has 90 days to review their case and an additional 180 day to make a ruling, and it pays for the customer not to piss me off by yelling at me, cause the commission uses the information I provide from my investigation.
my job used to be realy fun, but since my new director put a leash on our enforcement capibilities, I'm just there to draw a check, its still pretty fun to be talking to an employee and see them jump and get real nervous when I whip out my book and start writing, they all know that I can fire them quicker than their own boss, even mgmt. dont' like me, the new GM won't even say hi when I see him, he's a chicken shit anyway.

L, dealing with people is the drizzlin' sh*ts nowadays. It's kind of like everyone has a "all-for-me and screw you" attitude. I held the door open for an old lady yesterday with my good arm and never even received a smile. Not that I expected one but that happens so often that I often times think about not holding open a door for other people. But my momma brought me up better than that.
One of my wife's bosses is a real empty shirt, FOS, and insecure around women. One of the women quit - one of many since this guy was given his position - and he made the comment about her in a meeting "She was f*cking worthless anyway."
It seems to me that people are becoming more openly self centered, enamored with authority, and have no sense of integrity anymore.
Having a boss not even acknowledge your presence is sign of honor if the guy is a chicken sh*t!

I heard several stories of hunters being stalked by cougars here the past several years. I don't know if there is increased pressure or they ended up in an area close to where there were cubs.
There may be increased pressure from huge Coyote populations.
