|Ottawa County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Fri, Jun 24, 2011 at 9:16 AM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 6/17/11
Time: 7:30 pm
Location Description: Tyler between 56th & 72nd Ave (just South of GVSU)This is semi-rural area with widely separated homes and pastures.
I was riding my bicycle east on Tyler when I glanced to my right and saw a large cat, 3-4 ft long with long straight tail along a fence row about 50 yds south of the road. There were two horses beyond the fence and it looked to me like the cat was "stalking' the horses. I didn't realize what it was until I was home half an hour later.
