|Roscommon County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Mon, Sep 26, 2011 at 10:27 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 9-26-2011
Time: 12:04 AM
Location Description: Along East side of the Southbound Shoulder of US127, south of Higgins Lake Road, and north of Meads landing road.
The mountain lion was standing still on the shoulder of the road facing into the median, but looking at my car as I went by. I was able to see the whole cat as my headlights brought it into full view. I would estimate the tail length at approximately 3.5-4 feet long, and would estimate the back of the cat to be roughly 24 inches high. I did get a good look at the face and could clearly see the dark colors around it's muzzle. The body color was the typical tan.
