Discussion Topic: Is This Arkansas Cougar Real?

Here’s the latest Internet cougar candy. These photos popped up in my inbox with an unaccredited message reading, _This lion was hit between Prescott and Ashdown Arkansas, by a car. Fish and Game had to come and put him down. He charged at the Fish and Game guy in the process. Look at his PAWS!

What do you think? Are these photos real or doctored? Does anyone have more information about this claim?
