I saw three bears (mama 2babies) mtn biking Monday morning, that was beautiful... three large cats are just scary.

Not that I'm crying "shopped", but I actually live in central hillside, Duluth, and I don't think those photos were taken here.

Looks like a Colorado plate.

If they were mtn biking, I guess those circus bears really aren't that talented after all...

Three on one bike even, wild bears have moar madder skilz than circus bears.

"The first of my father's illusions was that bears could survive the life lived by human beings, and the second was that human beings could survive a life led in hotels."

So I got curious once the Colorado license plate was pointed out to me. I did a Google image search and although I could not find the New Jersey article (The cougars have been claimed to have been seen there) I did find this comment in a thread.
ADDED: From Googling "Conifer Cougar Pictures" it eventually led me to this forum. So far this seems to be the earliest posting of these pictures so may be the true origin of them. http://www.hayabusa.org/forum/random...them-pics.html
ADDED # 2: So seeing how much I could find out on this potentially "original" photo I entered it into a meta-data reader. (Cool program/site you can find here. http://www.findexif.com/) The info there lists that the photo was taken November 2nd 2003. I could not find a Geotag on it.

It's good to have the correct facts for amazing photos.

P.S. If UT or some other admin wants to edit my original post with the updated info on the correct background, go for it. I lost the ability to edit that top post.

Are we sure they're cougars? They don't look over 40 to me.
