|Oakland County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Mon, Jun 6, 2011 at 9:49 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 6/3/11
Location Description: Freedom Road between Drake Tree Hill and Hill View Ct ... Farmington Hills
A saw a large dark cat like animal weighing about 75 pounds with a large 3 foot tail. It crossed the road directly in front of me at about 20 feet. I saw it from a side view and it leaped over a guard rail and ran into the woods next to freedom road. It was more dark like a panther and slimmer then a Cougar .. more Panther like would how I would describe it. I'm certain it was not a Coyote .. much too large and shapely to be a Coyote or fox.
