|Muskegon County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Thu, Feb 9, 2012 at 9:38 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: Dec 2010
Time: 11:00 pm
Came in from the garage after smoking a cigarette, went and looked out the slider in the back yard, and watched what at first i thought was the dog walking in the back yard, but as it got closer i realized it was a cat, so i first assumed it was one of the big african cats that got out of the SPCA, but after closer observation i realized it was a cougar, i watched it on a well lit moonlight night, where i could see it in detail all the way to the dark brown tip on the tail, and a little discoloration in its tan fur. And then in a single leap hoped over a 6 foot fence like it was nothing, so considering it was wandering in back yards i called the police just to make sure it wasnt stealing pets or children. Beautiful animal, i have studied animals all my life, its a passion, and i know what it was.
