The smell is mightier than the fang.

This video was shot this past October somewhere around the city of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  It shows a cougar, or, mountain lion, whichever your prefer, at least initially showing interest in a big skunk meandering down a dirt road....until something unexpected happens.

The big cat's curiosity is cured once it gets close enough to get a whiff of the suddenly pissed off Pepe' Le Pew!

Watch as the cougar runs into a wooded area and just sits there long enough for the skunk to find it and continue the chase.

Who would have known?  A 15 lbs. skunk chasing away a 60 lbs. big cats with teeth.  Certainly something that one doesn't see everyday!
