This deformed mountain lion with teeth growing out of its forehead mystifies scientists from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

Officials have never seen such a deformity.

The mountain lion was first spotted eight miles southwest of Preston on Dec. 30 attacking a dog on someone’s property. The wild feline ran off and three hours later was killed legally by a hunter.

No clues

Are those the remains of a conjoined twin that died in the womb and absorbed into the other fetus?

Could it be the result of an incredibly rare teratoma tumor, which allows teeth, hair, fingers and toes to grow?

Or is it link to radioactive contamination?

It’s unknown why the mountain lion deformed. But one is sure, the dog survived the initial attack.
