An Idaho mountain lion discovered with an abnormal growth of teeth, hair and whiskers on the forehead has been proved to not be a fake.

The young female was killed in Franklin County by an Idaho hunter. As per state law, the hunter brought his kill to IDFG to be checked. IDFG officers are required to remove a tooth from harvested mountain lions to gather data on their ages, Jackson said.

“A hunter brought it in, and there was something extra,” Idaho Fish and Game Region 5 spokeswoman Jennifer Jackson told “We haven’t seen anything like this in our region.” “In the process of harvesting the animal we had an officer check it, and we determined something really interesting was going on,” Jackson said. h/t myfox8
