In the highlands of the Coc!e
Mountains there is a small feline
which has the peculiar habit of eating
oranges. Being a big orange eater,
the animal causes extensive damage
in the orange groves in the area. The
natives call it "fufiti" or 'gato
months" (mounittain cat) and firmly
believe the cat should not be killed
with a inmachete, saying that each
drop of blood would reproduce 10
cats eve n more destructive than the
slain one. They say th e "fufuna'"
must be killed with a rifle.
