How He-le'-jah the Cougar hunts Deer

The Northern Mewuk say:

He-le'-jah the Cougar is a hunter. He hunts O-woo'-yah the Deer. He crawls toward it like a cat, without making any noise; and when near enough makes a big leap and catches it, or knocks it down with his long tail. When he has killed the Deer he throws his long tail around it, and packs it off on his back.
