|Presque Isle County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Sat, Feb 5, 2011 at 8:43 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 12/23/2011
County: Presque Isle
Location Description: On county road 634 Near 6 Mile rd.
I was driving with my girlfriend who is from North Carolina and Has seen cougars multiple times when I saw a Cat on the right side of the rd; initially I thought it to be a bobcat just based on the size it was even at first glance too large to be a house cat. But right away she said thats a cougar. I didnt think so but then it went across the rd right in front of us and sure enough it was a cougar with a long tail curled up at the end. It also didnt seem to threatened by us sitting there it just kind of wandered into the woods. I would have taken a pix but my cell phone was at my house We had just ran to get a pizza. This wasnt a huge cougar or atleast I didtn think it was that big maybe like 30 inches or so not counting tail. I have never seen one in wild before but there is no doubt was; has anyone else seen anything like this around the millersburg/rainy lake area?
