A cougar is a carnivorous feline creature found in a wide range of biomes. While no match for steel bolts, it can take down a war dog quite easily, and can be a significant threat to unarmed dwarves caught outside. When killed and butchered, the resulting meat and leather are of better than average value (6☼ and 15☼ respectively).
Lone cougars sometimes ambush players in random encounters in Adventure Mode. Even for inexperienced characters, these fights are extremely simple. However if they get a lucky strike they can bite an armored leg off in one hit.
