I'm not doubting there are undocumented cougars in this area. All I'm saying is that everyone seems to be having a lapse in judging perspective. Do a google image search on forced perspective. It is achieved because objects that are closer to you appear larger than the objects in the background. That is all that is happening here. Even with that, I don't see that cat being as big as you all seem to think he is, so I'm confused.
Do you guys realize how big a cougar is? This cat isn't even the size of a bobcat.
OP, could you give us a simple measurement as to how wide the spot it is standing on is? It would help in showing perspective.
