|Wayne County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Sat, Aug 20, 2011 at 11:30 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 08/17/11
Location Description: Brownstown Township,Mi Sibley Rd. & Emitt
Traveling west on Sibley the cougar ran across the road about 25-50 yards in front of me. It took about 2 strides to cross & lept from about 2/3rds on the shoulder over a ditch, 5-7 feet wide, & landed on the grass on the other side. Lost sight of it as it croosed the field with lack of light. It had rained over night because it was still wet with a very light fog. It was about 7-9 feet long out stretched with the tail being at least 3 feet. Light to medium brown in color & about 2 1/2 -3 feet tall.
