|Van Buren County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Tue, Nov 8, 2011 at 2:07 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 11/5/11
Time: 1:00 A.M.
County: Van Buren
Location Description: On M40, about 5 miles north of Paw Paw.
I was driving with the brights on, only going 50 mph, because I had been seeing a lot of critters out and about. All of a sudden this black streak flew across the highway, right in front of the headlights. It leaped from one side of the highway to the other, only 4-6 feet in front of the van, without it's feet touching the road. It was fully extended, black as coal, and shot across the road so fast it must have been going almost as fast as I was. My scream woke up my guy, and I sure wish he hadn't been snoozing because he missed one heck of a sight!
