I'm trying to figure out if a cougar can jump over a school bus, the long way as many articles say. To me it would be impossible. I see where it can jump 15 ft verticle and 45 Ft horizontal, but not at the same time. Gravity will not allow a cougar to jump that far. Plus to jump over a bus it would have to start the jump a least 8-10 before the bus. And the highest apex of the jump would be about, 25 ft high to clear the jump. Please let me know what you think. Thanks Ken
