  Carolina Cougars - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carolina Cougars was a basketball franchise in the former American Basketball Association that existed from late 1969 through 1974.
Early on, the Carolina Cougars were not especially successful on the court, posting a 42-42 record in the 1969-1970 season, a 34-50 record in 1970-1971, and a 35-49 record in 1971-1972.
Later in 1974, the Carolina Cougars were moved to Missouri and became the Spirits of St. Louis until the ABA folded in 1976.

 Remember the ABA: Carolina Cougars   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
The Carolina Cougars were born in the spring of 1969, when the Southern Sports Corporation (owned by several North Carolina businessmen) agreed to buy the troubled Houston Mavericks franchise and move it to North Carolina.
Carolina became the first professional basketball team to use this "regional" concept, and for this franchise at least, it was somewhat successful.
However, the Cougars had reason to be optimistic because they had signed NBA All-Star Billy Cunningham away from the Philadelphia 76ers, and knew that he would play for the Cougars in the 1972-73 season.

Cougars are secretive, solitary hunters that feed primarily on white-tailed deer but will also eat smaller game such as opossums, rabbits, mice, and even insects if food supplies are limited.
Cougars were eliminated from most of eastern North America by the turn of the century due to habitat destruction, the decline of their main food supply - the white-tailed deer, and uncontrolled hunting and trapping.
Cougars are still fairly abundant in some of the sparsely populated western states.
