|Roscommon County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Mon, Nov 7, 2011 at 8:54 AM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 10/15/11
Time: 9:30 a.m.
Location Description: 18 and Hunter Lake Rd. area
I was driving back from my friends property in Mio where I was bowhunting when about 100 yds. in front of me I noticed something solid color dark brown at side of road. Now this definetly was not a deer because its head was shaped like a bowling ball with no long snout, about 24" to 30" to top of shoulder, and if I had to guess on weight I would have to say 70-80 lbs. Now to the skeptics, I have been hunting all over lower peninsula for 20 yrs. and I have never seen any other animal shaped like this. Also I sped up to get a better look at this animal but it seen me when it got to side of road spun around fast and leaped three times (about 40-50 yds.) to the jack pines out of sight.
