THE GREAT WHITE NORTH — So this video comes from Canada and shows a wild and ferocious cougar running in fear from a tiny skunk. It's pretty funny to see this big cat running away from Pepé Le Pew, but it's even funnier to see the skunk torment the cougar. The skunk knows it won this battle, but just to rub it in a little more it chases the cougar deeper into the trees just because it can.

While it may seem easy to poke fun at the cougar, I get it. I’ve previously written about a high school date that went awry following an unfortunate moment where I ran over an already dead skunk on the road. I tried to avoid it, but the narrow road and oncoming traffic blocked my path. I tried everything I could to get the smell out before my date started, but needless to say, it wasn’t enough. I went to pick up my date, opened her car door and then went to my side to get in. As I was buckling up, the first thing my date asked was, “What’s that smell?” We promptly got out and she drove that night.

So trust me when I say skunk funk is no joke. Not only did it ruin my date, but it could have ruined this cougar's whole weekend.

Please wait ...
