|Manistee County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Thu, Aug 4, 2011 at 9:32 AM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: July 2011
Time: 4 to 5 am
Location Description: Near Magoon Creek and on County Line Rd. in Filer Twp.
I first heard a confrontation with a neighbors Shepard and what turned out to be a cougar after other neighbors heard it and one saw it after chickens were killed. It was laying in the back yard waiting for the chickens to come out of the barn. It got up and left after the woman yelled at it. The growl was that of a big cat. When I heard it I wasn't sure until others heard the same sounds.
