A mountain lion with a bizarre deformity — teeth and whiskers growing out of its forehead — has been shot in Idaho.
The male mountain lion, also known as a cougar, was legally killed by a hunter on Dec. 30 about 13 kilometres southwest of Preston, Idaho, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game said in a statement released Friday.
"The mountain lion had an unusual deformity — fully-formed teeth and what appears to be small whiskers were growing out of hard fur-covered tissue on the left side of the animal's forehead," the statement said.
