"The eastern cougar (Felis concolor couguar) has likely been extinct for at least 70 years, according to a thorough review of data from researchers, states and Canadian provinces across the subspecies’ range. In response to the review, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is proposing to remove the extinct subspecies from the endangered species list.

The Service concluded that cougars occasionally occur in eastern North America, but that they are either Florida panthers, dispersing animals from western populations, or have been released or escaped from captivity. The conclusions are based on a review of more than 100 reports dating back to 1900."
Move'n on.

good read, thanks, never heard of them, they look like they could've done some serious damage to domestic live stock, I can only imagine they were hunted pretty hard.
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

The Ghost of North America

http://www.easterncougar.org/pdfs/The-Ghost-of-North-America.pdf

"Case 25: About 1904
PLACE: Millville, York County, New Brunswick.
OBSERVERS: Game Warden David Carey and John Gullison, trapper.
Gullison and Carey were trapping partners that winter. They caught a cub
panther in one of their sets and saw the tracks of the mother as she had circled
the trapped cub. As they were not sure what it was they had caught, they sent
the skin to either the Hudson Bay Company or the John Hallam Company of
Toronto. They received a cheque for $3.80 and the skin was identified as a "cub
cougar, or mountain lion."
Move'n on.

So, am I to assume that older Jersey women have stopped trying to pick up younger men?  ::)

(I am sorry, I couldn't resist...)  :-[
So, how did I end up here anyway?

People swear up and down we have them here in the SC / NC mountains. One person I met, who has a good reputation in the area, saw one at his house.
No matter how conventional wisdom may fly in the face of radical thought, it's still the most popular type.

People say the see them in Salem, OR too but it generally turns out to be a big house cat.  We do have over 5,000 of them in Oregon though.  They're no bother.  It's cool when you get a glimpse of one.

There have been numerous attacks on dogs, cattle and humans that have been documented in both Arizona and California. A rancher friend of mine lost 100 head of cattle to a pair of them. When they died the cattle stopped disappearing. Go figure. :snowball: :snowball: :snowball:

There are reports of sightings in Pa as well.  Even just a couple miles from my place
