|Osceola County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Mon, Oct 10, 2011 at 12:16 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 10/08/2011
Location Description: Camping next to the Evart motorcycle trail head.
A buddy and I were sitting around the camp fire and I was shinning my flashlight into the woods and saw two eyes light up and disappear. I shined my flash light in the same area and saw the two eyes light up again. We grabbed a spotlight and shined it out in the woods and saw what looked like a fairly large solid tan cat with short ears and a white tail. It was way too big to be a house cat and it was definetly not a fox. We persued it and it just walked away slowly not letting us get close and it hid in some brush and watched us. We saw a spot in the tree full of water and in appeared the cougar was drinking from there. We went back to our campsite and never saw it again.
