Default Re: Mt Lion attack in Ca

This catamount was killed on a highway here in CT just about a year ago.
It's hard to dispute their presence when you have proof like that

On the other hand, last month I thought I saw one where we were camped.
It was nearly dark and it just happened to cross my field of vision. This animal was the right size and shape and that's all I could really tell but "that's a mountain lion !" popped right into my head
The next morning I went and tracked it and found fresh tracks.
It was then obvious that I was mistaken. This was only a bear. A small skinny bear, but not the lion that I was worried about

I am often more suprised when people report these sightings to a government person. As best I can tell, rarely is your word taken seriously lest it be known that the public knows more than a goverment person does and that simply can't be allowed to happen. I have told friends when blessed with seeing something rare, but to tell the government....Let them find it themselves, it's what we pay them to do.
