Pets and vehicles, cute.... but the cougar would bite a bad guys face off

The "Coalinga Kitty" was California Highway Patrol officer Jack Tarkington's pet mountain lion named Oscar, who followed Tarkington around Coalinga and rode on the back of his motorcycle.
Tarkington got Oscar as a 4-day-old cub from a circus in 1926. Oscar grew to 8 feet, from the tip of his tail to his nose, and weighed about 200 pounds. Oscar was reportedly a startling sight perched on the back of Tarkington's motorcycle.

I can't remember where this one is from
