Did a leg-hold trap take cougar's leg?

RE: Three legged cougar put down.

Yes, normally other cougars would attack each other in such a manner as to amputate each other's feet, it's been known to happen over thousands of years... Wow! National Geographic best get hold of that info right quick!
Actually, despite that "in depth" study on how the wounded cougar came to be, I expect that poor unfortunate and doomed animal actually had a run in with a leg-hold trap of some sorts and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out either.
