|Mason County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Fri, Aug 26, 2011 at 10:21 AM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 08-19-2011
Time: 12:30 PM
Location Description: Lakeshore Dr. between Pentwater & Luidington. Near Summit Park.
My husband and I were traveleing south on Lakeshore Dr. and saw a cougar cross the road just past the Summit Park entrance. We slowed down and watched it for a couple minutes as it was stalking a deer that was feeding in the woods. We have a cottage about 1/2 mile from this location and there are alot of deer in the area. I was not 100% sure that was what it was at first so when we got home I looked it up on line and I am sure that it was a cougar. Did not resemble a lynx or bobcat.
