Cougar meat is a great tasting meat and tastes somewhat similar to pork. However, it has to be treated well and the animal should be skinned as soon as possible. Old mountain men considered cougar meat a delicacy. Since cougar is a predator that hunts and eats other animals, it is recommended to cook it thoroughly to avoid contracting the dreaded Trichinosis parasite.
