Now, I am going to compare cougar vs Gray wolf or you can say that Puma vs Gray wolf. They all are living in same habitat and hunt for food. So, it would be interesting to know comparison and difference between cougar vs Gray wolf or Puma vs Gray wolf.

Cougar facts

Starting with cougar (people also called it Puma). Know some comparisons between Puma vs Cougar. I tried to put some description about Puma and cougar. Hope you people like it.

Cougar also known as Mountain lion, panther and mountain cat, it is found in America, Canada and calculate among the large terrestrial mammals. It’s habitat is American regions, it comes under second heaviest cats after jaguar.

They are solitary animals and more looks like a domestic cat rather than fearless species. Cougar (Puma) diet include elk, deer, mouse, sheep, cattle, houses, rodents. It used to avoid people living in nearby areas. We have seen very rare cougar attacks on human beings.

Due to loss of habitat, it becomes difficult for cougars to survive. It also has the Guinness record of having the highest number of names. Sub-family of cougars (Puma) is Felidae and it is very much similar to cats. It has 32 sub- species. The complete characteristics like weight, life span, size, length, tail size, shoulder size and all are covered below in comparison section.

Gray wolf facts

It is also known with the name timber wolf and found in America, Africa and Eurasia. It is largest member of its family, weights around 43-45 Kg. It has long, bushy and grayish winter fur and also found in red, white, brown and black color.

It belongs to genus and have specialty of hunting large preys. It shows highly expressive behavior towards its prey. The greater threat for gray wolfs are again humans and tigers. They feed on livestock, carrion, garbage, smaller animals etc. They are world well researched animal because many books written on it.

It has been associated with humans because of strong connection with livestock. They used to hunt livestock and directly or indirectly come in contact with humans. It is ancestor of the dog.

You should also know some comparisons like wolverine vs gray wolf. Both hunt in same way. So, it would be interesting to know who would win the fight between Gray wolf vs wolverine.

Who will win the fight? The main question, who will win whether it is Gray wolf or Cougar (also known as Puma). I explained comparison and difference between them. Now, it is high time to tell who going to win the fight.

It is much easy to say that Cougar (Puma) would win the fight as they are bigger in size and very powerful in comparison to gray wolf. I have seen a video in which Cougar is winner in comparison to Gray wolf.
I hope you like reading the article.

      “…wins 6/10 times in a 1-on-1 fight…”
      What a pointless data-less, incorrect, post..

      If by a 1-on-1 match Klendathu, you mean a prime ‘Alpha’ male wolf
      VS a territory boss ‘Tom’ cougar, then just as in any fight between healthy,
      fairly equal sized wild felines against dog species, the cat will, quite predictably, win…
      By K.O…

            You couldn’t be more wrong. A full grown male cougar at 140 plus against the biggest male wolf, would take down the wolf to the ground in 1 second. It would tear it to underside shreds with it’s back feet while biting into the wolf’s neck. The wolf wouldn’t be able to bite at that point and having no claws to speak of the fights over. It’s just a matter of time for the 1 1/2-2″ canines of the cougar to sever the spinal cord or puncture the artery of the wolf. No fight whatsoever as far as the cougar is concerned.

    Cougar slaughterhouse. Cougar will literally annihilate a wolf in a one-on-one fight. Now, jaguar would beat wolf easily, and after a fierce struggle will beat the cougar.

    You guys are dumb. The biggest things cougars kill is deer, lone wolves have taken down half ton moose alone. Wolves have a much stronger bite force than cougars. They are both same in size about. Wolves have Way mores stamina than cougars. Felines in general. They are both probably the same strength. They both have a 50/50 chance. You are really underestimating wolves.

      You can’t be that ignorant, can you? It wouldn’t even be a fight. It would actually sad. The wolf would have no chance and would know it. As far as a moose. No a wolf can’t kill a full grown moose. In fact a moose won’t even run from a lone wolf. It would dare it to try something. A moose would kill the wolf so fast it would make you head spin. A cougar has more bite force than a wolf and plenty of stamina because the fight will be over in less than a minute.

    It is not fair to pit lone wolves against cougars. The wolves win if there are two or more. Cougar takes a shortcut across an open field. Wolf, sleeping uphill, catches scent and runs to meet him. Cougar engages, wolf dodges in and out. Cougar is definitely winning, but then another wolf comes. Cat’s still doing good, fending them off, but guess what? Then another wolf comes, and another. Cougar gets more and more tired, wolves get more and more nips in. One wolf grabs cougar by the tail, cat whips around to meet him. Second wolf grabs him behind the neck, cougar turns to get him off. But then each wolf grabs something, a leg or a patch of flesh, and start pulling in different directions. One on one, cougar victory, one on pack, wolves scatter kitty all over the field.

      It’s very fair you dumbass how is it fair to have 10 wolves against 1 fucking cougar shut your mouth. 1 on 1 the weak wolf doesn’t stand a chance. And if you wanna have 10 wolves against 1 cat then let’s see those 10 wolves take on my good friend the Siberian tiger yeah that’s what I though those wolves won’t stand a chance against a 900 pound cat. And btw a Siberian tiger is the most dangerous animal on land pretty much.

      Wolf dodge in and out. The cat is much quicker and would kill the lone wolf in less than 30 seconds. One or two wolves are not going to mess with a full grown male cougar. They wouldn’t dare. Even if they could kill it they’d both be wounded to the point of starving.

      Wolf uses teeth, not mind control..

        Sorry to burst your bubble, but a Eurasian lynx will not be able to take down a wolf.

        That being said, I would give this fight to the cougar because they are both the same size and strength, but the cougar is more agile and better armed.

          Eurasian lynx can get big.. & the big ones ,

    James W,
    Well if you do some research, you will learn that Eurasian Lynxs don’t cross 70 pounds on average…

    That being said, 50 kg (~110 pounds) do exist, but that is still not as big as a wolf. A grey wolf can easily weigh between 150 and 175 pounds and they have much stronger jaws.

    Theoretically, a Eurasian Lynx might be able to kill a wolf, but it unlikely.

    AP,
    review some research on jaw morphology.

    Dog species have long multipurpose jaws,
    with many teeth & which allow sideways movements for chewing.

    These jaws are not “stronger” than a cat of similar size, since their
    shorter, more rigidly articulated & triangulated jaw allows more force
    to be applied at the canines for a specifically applied.. killing bite.

    Wild dogs typically kill by application of numerous ‘snapping’ bites
    which cause multiple cumulative injuries.
    But a lone wolf won’t have this option – against a similar sized cat..

    A cougar (or large Eurasian lynx) going ‘head-to-head’ with a wolf,
    uses its powerful fast-twitch musculature, & dynamic body-agility with
    characteristic cat-species speed & accuracy – to grasp, then manipulate
    the long-muzzled dog bauplan – quickly getting in & under for a fatal throat-bite
    lock on the canid.. & so.. predictably, its its game over, for ‘the lone wolf’- in fact.

      A grey wolf only needs one bite with 1,200lb to 2,000lb of bite force if the bite hits the back game over or neck really any place vital check out bite force and compare with other animals do research before talking you will look at wolves differently I promise

    James W,
    I have done my research and I agree with you – at similar sizes, cats have a stronger bite than dogs.

    However, here is the issue – even the largest Eurasian Lynx is not as big as a grey wolf – as I mentioned in my previous post. Therefore, the wolf’s bite is stronger.

    But a cougar would beat a wolf.

    AP,
    you are incorrect,
    & on basic principles..

    A large Euro-lynx’s bite on the wolf’s throat will kill it,
    those long canines will penetrate deeply into the essential
    structures of the canid’s neck, such as support cadio-pulmonary
    function, & primary central nervous system pathways.

    Such a lynx can/will use its fast, powerful paw strikes to fend off the
    wolf’s jaw-snapping attempts, while it positions itself expertly
    for a rapid neck-bite, a ‘blitz-attack’ of surgical intensity,
    same as it does to the deer, which form its prey,
    & which are often much larger & stronger – than any one wolf..

      James W,
      What you described is a fight between a cougar and a wolf, not a lynx and a wolf.
      The lynx could indeed kill the wolf with a throat bite – but that is unlikely because the wolf’s sheer strength would overpower the lynx (even a 50 kg lynx)
      The deer analogy does not work because lynx usually ambush them, and deer don’t have much to fight back with except their legs. The wolf, on the other hand, has its legs and jaws to fight back.
      In order for this scenario be probable, the lynx would need to be fighting a smaller species or wolf, or it would need an element of surprise.
      One on one against a grey wolf, the wolf would win almost every time.
      To put things into perspective, 20+ wolves can take down a tiger. I don’t think 20+ lynxs would have a lot of success with that…

    Also, you present valid points, but I think you are underestimating the wolf’s bite. While one bite from a lynx to a wolf’s neck could kill it, one bite from a wolf to a lynx could kill the lynx too.

      AP,
      Lynx do not form prides,
      & tigers actively persecute wolves,
      which fear them on that basis.. pack, or no.

      & as I noted, lynx’s combined weaponry outmatches
      that of the wolf, as does its attack profile – for a kill bite.

      Also, a lone wolf is generally a much more anxious animal,
      than a lynx, which is by habit, a solo hunter.

      In a one-on-one situation, the wolf is at serious disadvantage.

      Reply

    James W,
    Yes, it is true that lynxs don’t form prides and that tigers regularily persecute wolves. I was just using that as an analogy.

    And, yes, a lynx does have better weaponry than a wolf, but at the same time, the lynx is at a serious size and strength disadvantage. The lynx will not be able to get to wolf’s neck fast enough because, like I mentioned in my previous post, the wolf would overpower it with it’s sheer strength advantage. Therefore, the lynx would need multiple bites and paw swipes to kill the wolf, whereas as one bite from the wolf would instantly kill the lynx. Now, at similar sizes and strength, the lynx would win, but the wolf is simply too powerful for a lone lynx to take down.

    A lynx fighting a grey wolf is like a house cat fighting a German Shepard. The house cat can indeed do a lot of damage, but one bite from the dog would kill it on the spot.

    & ‘Eurasian’ lynx species, likely, you have got them conflated..

    No way is your ludicrous ‘G-S dog versus domestic pet cat’ deal, in any way realistic.

    A large & adept male Euro-lynx will have no problem dealing to any lone wolf,
    by using exactly the same method a cougar does, which is in fact, wildcat S.O.P.

    James, you need to understand that the turning point in this fight is the wolf’s strength. It would never let the lynx get to it’s neck – not to mention that the wolf has better stamina.

    do some more..
    & cite your evidence of ‘strength’ factors
    in favour of the wolf. It simlpy cannot contend with
    a lynx of similar size in a one-on-one combat.

    Wolf stamina is for distance running, it is not applicable to combat for
    a lone wolf – when a large lynx has a secure bite-hold on to his throat,
    choking the life out of him, teeth going deeper, with every movement attempt..
    & with the cat’s meat-hook claws firmly latched on, the wolf sure aint gonna be
    running anywhere.. ever again..

    Ask yourself why even small cats can make a living in the wild, mostly alone,
    but even the largest wild dogs are only successful – when operating in numbers.

    James W,
    I can cite some links in the next post if you like, but common sense should tell you that a 150-175 lb wolf which can take down bison in packs, is probably going to be stronger than a 70 lb lynx which needs to ambush a mere deer in order to kill it…

    To quote you, “It simlpy cannot contend with a lynx of similar size in a one-on-one combat.” You are missing the point James. There in no wild lynx in this world as large as a grey wolf – even a 50 kg (~110 lbs) lynx is dwarfed by a small grey wolf.

    As for the running vs combat thing, there might be some truth to that, but keep in mind that wolves can run long distances because they have good lungs – something very useful in combat…

    To be fair, cats can live alone because they ambush their prey, unlike dogs, which do frontal attacks – so they operate in groups.

    Oh no!
    Not “common sense”,
    you are getting awfully Aka/like now, Apey..

    You really are wrong, just google ‘Eurasian lynx & wolf encounter’
    & see the images.. the cat sure aint “dwarfed” by any means.

    Check out the size of the ‘pet’ lynx kept as ‘housecats’ by Russians
    on youtube, on one such clip the paw spread is ~human hand sized..

    Further, the lynx would love to have a reindeer just walk out & attempt to go head-to-head..
    Lynx have to carefully stalk & ambush deer, due to the fact.. that they run away!
    ( & a lone wolf would be wise to do so too, if the cat is in an ornery mood)..

    Can you please try to post the link again? It was not working when I clicked on it.

    I know right? Oh no! Common sense??!! My grandma used to say that common sense is the most uncommon thing…

    Anyways, I did search up lynx and grey wolf on google, and I can promise you that wolf was a hell a lot larger than the lynx. Plus, James, how can you not comprehend this? A lynx is 24 inches tall at the shoulder and weights 70 lbs. A grey wolf is 32 inches tall at the shoulder and weighs between 150 and 175 lbs. Clearly the wolf is much larger.

    About pet lynxs, they can get that big, but it is pretty uncommon… Lynxs are huge compared to normal house cats, but not compared to grey wolves…

    And, on another note, how am I like Aka/Tony? I don’t recall cursing- even when you make ludicrous claims…

    One more thing:
    The lynx would prefer the deer come face to face because it does not have enough stamina to chase it long enough…
    Unlike wolves, who can run long distances to catch their prey – this a result of having stronger lungs – something very useful in combat.

    Wolf does not have “stronger” lungs, it has a bauplan

    Most people seriously underestimate the power of lynx’s my great grandpa has a farm up in the Adirondack mountains and he had a problem with a lynx that was killing his cows so he had to go hunt it he now has it stuffed above his fireplace in his cabin. But then again wolfs tend to be stronger than lynx’s.

    Here is the problem though – that is the only advantage the wolf has. Generally speaking, at similar sizes, felines dominate canines. And contrary to popular belief – felines do have the stamina to fight for long periods of time. There are many cases of big cats fighting for hours with prey like buffalo.

    The wolf might have the endurance and protective coat – but the cougar has size, muscle mass (aka strength), weaponary (jaws with sharper and thicker canines and sharp claws), and aggression.

    cats have terrible stamina they can not “fight” for hours. wolves may not be as fast as some cats but they can run over
    25 miles without getting tired

    wolves don´t only have the endurance and protective coat on their bodies they also have jaws that can crunch through a bisons femur bone and they also have intelligence

      Yeah a grey wolf would beat a cougar. Dogs if they were the size of a lion would most likely kill one too. Cats do have a bad stamina compared to wolfs and bears not saying that they have bad stamina it’s just that wolves and bears have one of the best endurance out of all carnivores. Cats don’t have the best stamina because they are ambush predators you don’t see them running nearly as far as a wolf. The only big cat that could try and fight a buffalo for a long time would be a lion that’s because they hunt in groups and would take turns.

        I’m a person,
        You are wrong on basic principles. A 400 lb dog stands absolutely no chance against a 400 lb lion or tiger. Take the Turkish Kangal, for example. They are the world’s most powerful dog and have the strongest bite force of any extant dog. Yet, a 200 lb Turkish Kangal would get slaughtered by a 200 lb leopard – thats why owners put spike collars around their dog’s neck to give them even half a chance of winning against wolf animals.

            Iap,
            One more thing: The larger canids get, the clumsier their bauplan gets. On the other hand, the larger felines get, everything, including strenght, agility, bite force, canine strenght, etc. scales up.

            A dog the same size of a lion would very slow, clumsy, sluggish, not agile, etc. This immediately means a win for the lion.

        As like I explained to Jake, felines having bad stamina is a misconception. The reason why cats are ambush predators is because they hunt solo, unlike canids, who operate in groups. Feline can and have jogged long distances for miles.
        And FYI: Big cats can and have done frontal attacks on buffalo – some of which take hours, proving that they do have the endurance to fight for long periods of time.

      Jake,
      You are incorrect. Felines having bad stamina is a misconception. People automatically assume that just because felines can’t sprint for long distances, they have poor stamina. What people fail to realize, is that even wolves and hyenas CAN’T sprint full speed for long distances. Wolves can trot slowly for long distances, BUT, so can big cats. Lions and tigers, for example, can slowly patrol their territory – which can be over a 100 miles long.

          No. Try and comprehend. Felines have been documented slowly jogging for miles. Wolves can also do that. No animal can run full speed for miles. See that Youtube video where a tiger fights with a bull gaur for hours and eventually wins.

          Let me address bite force now. The wolf might have heavier pressure jaws, but their jaws are made to chew bone – as a result, their teeth are blunt.
          The cougar’s teeth are meant for killing. The cougar has longer and thicker canines, which are designed to penetrate through the tough hide of animals and strike a vital organ. Not to mention that the cougar has a larger saggital crest on its skull which gives it a more powerful bite at the canines.

      One more thing Jake, intelligence means nothing in this fight. And I doubt wolves are above cougars in combat intelligence – only in problem solving.

      If a alpha male wolf and a territory boss male tom cougar get into a fight, 6-7/10 times the cougar will win via KO.

      whatever wolves have stamina leagues above big cats. also even us humans can jog slowly for miles.
      the wolf has a protective covering of fur meaning the cougar will have a hard time getting to the wolves neck or badly injure the wolf
      while the wolf has jaws that can bite through a bisons leg bone so yes
      in my opinion the wolf wins 6/10

      also the only times a cougar has beaten a wolf in a fight is by ambushing it

    Jeeze kid..
    Do you never learn?
    ’bout time you revised your flawed “opinion”. Wolf’s stamina will do nothing for him – the cougar can fight for hours too – you know.

    You think the wolf’s fur is armor? L.O.L.. Cougar’s can penetrate the hide of moose – it would find it a luxury to penetrate the wolf’s fur.

    And you conveniently ignored what I said about bite force.

    The cougar wins via KO – just too much strength, power, size, and weaponary for the precious pup to deal with, eh kid? L.O.L…

        Wrong.

        “cougars rarely go after moose”
        Wrong again.

        “a wolves jaws can bite through a bisons leg bones”
        So can a cougar’s.

        “in my opinion the wolf wins”
        “Opinion” does not count in the scientific method – only facts, which you have failed to provide.

    I think this will be a close one. Considering everything. An alpha male wolf at its peak is very territorial, has a very thick shaggy coat, to withstand all forest elements and is a very strong animal it’s stamina is quite long is a survivor, strong hunter. (Able to take down prey double or more it’s own size/weight) has a very strong jaw and will fight to the death. A cougar on the other hand is very strong is flexible with sharper claws has a lot ofstamina and is abit faster. how ever if a wolf locks it’s jaws onto the cougars neck it may be in a lot of trouble however if a cougar slashes a wolfs ribs, it could wind it badly then killing it.bith and both never back down from a fight I beleive it would be a close one.
