|Van Buren County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Mon, Jun 7, 2010 at 4:33 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 4-22-10
Time: 6:30 pm
County: Van Buren
Location Description: I saw a very large brown/tan feline with a long tail walking across the corn fields toward the woods.
I was letting my dogs outside to go to the bathroom. Then i looked across the corn field and saw a very large brown/tan definitely a feline, from a distance it is hard to say around how much it weighed but it was considerably larger than my golen retriever it probably weighed somewhere around 85-100 pounds. Im lucky that my dogs didnt see it and go off and chase it down, i wouldnt want to pick up pieces left of my pups. without a doubt it was definitely a cougar, if theres one theres more.
