The yearling cougar, which was harvested near Weston last week by an unidentified hunter, had a separate set of teeth growing out the side of its forehead. The community of Weston is located about 12 miles southwest of Preston near the Idaho/Utah border.
The biologists and veterinarians said it could also be a teratoma, which is a rare tumor that can contain hair, teeth and bones. In rare circumstances, a teratoma can also sprout more complex body parts such as eyes, fingers or toes.
Like conjoined twins, teratomas are rare in both humans and animals but have been documented in canines and horses.

I wonder if there are any chemical companies or industrial operations in the area.

Is that a chicken growing out of it's head or just something that resembles a chicken?

That's pretty bizarre but I will never understand why anyone would want to kill one of the majestic cats (unless it's eating you or your livestock of course)
