Nah, the Nittany Lion is way farther west.   :D

Beenthere, the Amish fellow isn't in any kind of trouble for shooting the cougar, because the Game Commission doesn't believe there are any in the State.

Apparently a cougar was recently spotted in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (yes Virginia, that is English ;)), far east of their normal range. They are obviously following game along the river valley from it's source in the Rocky Mountains.

20 years ago saw a pair of young mountain lions in stark nh. Never forget that. still had their spots.
saw a hawk take out a pigeon in mid air last year, big ball o feathers.

Took the family to a beach in cape cod early one day, as it filled up, kinda noticed I was the only guy there. I was a hot day, apparently too hot for the women to keep their bathing suits on. Mirrored sunglasses kept me out of trouble with my wife.

sorry no pics ;)

I once saw an owl pluck a young black squirrel off the side of a tree. It was early one morning and I had my sights on that squirrel when the owl got him.  :o

Does anyone here watch monsterquest on discovery channel?  Thats a good show most times.  Roxie, I hear the PA game commission is denying cougars because of something to do with insurance claims on high value livestock.  I don't know how that stuff works, just what I heard.

Also, here's a link on the story of the amish guy attacked by a "cougar".

I'm still looking for the eastern cougar.  ;D ;)

Just ask any ol' farmer down around here.  Any one of 'em will swear that they've seen a Florida panther at some point in their lives.  I'd be less surprised to find bigfoot in my backyard than a cougar.
Say all you want about us not having panthers in North Georgia, but my cat-killed brood mare will argue the point or the trail cam pics in Dalton, Ga. or the fact that Charlie Smith up in Big Firey Gizzerd Cove, TN. used to raise hogs every year just to feed to his "resident " cat.
