Date of Observation: 07-23-2011
Location Description: Mechanic by the industrial park. Ran across the street. The one I saw a few years ago was across the road from Silo's Fun Park, by the river, where the railroad tracks are.
On Mechanic street by the industrial park. I was driving west on Mechanic, when it ran in front of my car. I thought it might be a deer at first, but it ran differently, and then stopped at the side of the road and looked right at my car as I went past. It was either a cougar or the biggest cat I've ever seen. A few years ago, I saw one over by the river, past Silo's fun park, but it happened so quickly I wasn't sure. This time I am positive.
