Date of Observation: 10-27-2011
Location Description: On the edge of an open field next to our house, on miller rd.
. I saw a black animal in motion walking in the opposite direction, approximately 100 yards away which caught my attention. I watched the animal for about 20 seconds, then it turned sideways facing twars a tree line and Miller Rd. My 20 year old daughter was also watching the creature and when it turned sideways we both said "that's a cougar"!! Black short fur,Long slender body with shoerter legs and a long slender tail which hund low and away from it's body. I am in shock. The animal disappeared into the tree line. I am in shock but excited at the same time!!
