|Oakland County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Fri, Mar 4, 2011 at 8:10 AM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 3/3/11
Location Description: stevenson highway north of 13 mile
I was driving south down stevenson highway at about 10:45pm. I was driving at about 60 mph. I was closer to 13 mile than 14 mile when all of a suddan i see something run accross the road. It was low to the ground, lighter in color seemed to be moving at 45+mph, had a long tale that was pointed straight back as it was running, it crossed the diveded road and threw a business parking lot in a split second. It crossed the road about 40 yards in front of me. I lived in the U.P. for 3 years, never seen a mt. lion, but one late drive home from work and one runs out in front of me...
