What would happen or should i ask is it legal to shoot one pf these big cats? If the opportunity arose. Since there are not to be any native species around. Just curious. Im sure there are more stories and photos out there and i believe most are probably pets released.

It has been posted on here several times in the past.
If someone shot and killed a "cougar" in TN they would get a ticket.

There is not a hunting season for them here, thus it would be illegal to kill one.

Please dont take this the wrong way. (Trying to add some humor). We may not ever have any solid evidence that they do exist. All the pics that are submitted to the jury are shot down as photo shopped. Lol

This site is interesting. It documents any unconfirmed sightings of big cats in West TN.
I've seen a cougar in Haywood county, and my Dad had one circle his camper on an old Westvaco area back in the 80's.

So we can't shoot Bigfoot either? What about the $10 million dollar reward for evidence of big foot?

You could probably afford to pay the ticket.
