Roscommon County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Thu, Jul 28, 2011 at 7:14 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: October 2003
Time: 10pm
County: Roscommon
Location Description: I was traveling north on M18 between Houghton Lake and Roscommon when I saw a HUGE cat run about 30 yards in front of me. I stopped my truck and got my spot light out to see if I could find it again. I saw the cat briefly in the edge of the woods before it slipped away. What I saw was a cougar. I have been wildlife my whole entire life and have seen them in person before but not in Michigan until that night. I have heard stories from other people but did not give much credibility to what they told me until the night I saw the cougar. I also looked on the edge of the road for tracks and saw one really nice print and was a cougar track and not a bear track. There have been a lot of claims as far as sightings go in this area. Later, I called th MDNR and the officer denied that cougars are living in Michigan.
