A catamount is a ferocious feline, a mix between a mountain lion and a bobcat. It is predominant in the mountains of Western North Carolina, particularly Cullowhee, and in New Hampshire. Its prey of choice happens to be The Mountaineer. It excells in mauling dumb App State students, leaving their remains unidentifiable.
