Caught one once in a leghold trap. It reared back and yanked so hard it pulled the jaws out of the frame and left (#2 trap). Was freaking huge from the tracks I could see. Only time I ever had a cougar near a trap.I tried my hand at bobcat trapping last year. The bobcats didn't like my sets, but the cougars sure did. I had several step within feet (and some even inches) of my traps. I always wondered how I'd get one out.
