Kalamazoo County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Tue, Jul 31, 2012 at 11:20 AM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: July 5, 2012
Time: 11:00AM
County: Kalamazoo
Sighting Description:
Travelling westbound I-94 in the left lane (approx mile marker 80), I spotted a large black object on the left shoulder of the concrete wall/median. As I passed it appeared to be a large (estimate 60-80 lbs) black cat with a distinctive long tail. The carcass was stretched out just like a sleeping cat (only much larger). I was unable to stop but called my wife to have her report it to the DNR. Driving by the site @ 1pm, the carcass had been removed. I was unable to get confirmation from the DNR the following morning. I own 2 house cats and know it was not a dog. This area is heavily wooded on both sides of the freeway with the Kalamazoo river to the north (right side). After researching potential for such a sighting I believe the carcass was a NABP-North American Black Panther (a generic term attributed to such sightings). I would love to know if any other motorists reported this sighting, and whether the police or DNR officials could or would corroborate.
