CHARLIE, THE LONESOME COUGAR (1967)

   

Another one of those combinations of a narrative and a nature documentary movies, Charlie is a cougar that was found and raised by a man in a northwestern logging community. Charlie is more like a pet than a wild animal, he’s everybody’s friend, but still seems to cause his fair share of mischief. But when Charlie gets lost as an adult and reverts back to his wild instincts, there is trouble when Charlie makes his way back into town. Some parts seemed a little boring and long but overall it was entertaining. It was fun to watch Charlie and also interesting to learn how loggers send their logs down the river as easier, faster transport than vehicles. Good for a one time watch and then you’re set.
