There have been a handful of Cougar sightings in the southern Rusk/northern Chippewa county area over the last year or so. Population is relatively sparse, but yet there are enough folks around to catch one crossing a road here and there. I haven't seen one myself, but my folks have, as have a few others I know. They've been sightings in broad daylight too, not fuzzy pictures from a trailcam or a sighting in the headlights from 300 yards away. Everyone who has seen one has said there was no question about what they were looking at.

Same deal in Massachusetts. About 10 years ago when I was 6 I saw my friends dog get in a fight with one. My friend was with me and we both saw the thing tower over his german shepherd. Of course nobody believed me until a couple years later when a couple more were spotted in the area. Now there are local sightings at least a couple times a year.

Was watching this post for a while biting my tongue, glad others also see the skinny assed hound I saw at first glance.
Cougars are around the countryside but are extremely rare and mysterious outside of there home range, hence the optimistic interest!

Wow, that is awesome. Did you put some tuna out there for the big kitty? I think I would want to be on his good side.
