Alfred Wise told GreenvilleOnline.com that a friend sent him this photo of a mountain lion that was hit by a car on Highway 178 about 16 miles east of Greenwood. The lion was barely alive and unable to move, so the state Department of Natural Resources came out and put the lion down.

The Internet is a great tool, but it can make you feel like a greater fool.

Despite what your e-mail’s inbox might show, a 260-pound mountain lion was not found in Saluda County.

The photographed animal is actually quite popular on the World Wide Web. The same photograph can be found on a Web site dedicated to Internet myth busting, snopes.com. Just type in the search “Arizona Mountain Lion.”
