|Marquette County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Sun, Jul 24, 2011 at 1:20 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 7/24/2011
Time: 1:00 pm
Location Description: The trails of the Michigan Iron Industry Museum in Negaunee, Michigan. Wooded, secluded area.
I work at the museum and one of our visitors and her family reported sighting the cougar on our trail system. I didn't see the cougar myself but the woman said that it was laying in the grass in the woods surrounding the trail. As they got closer they heard the cougar moving and saw it stand up. It growled before turning and running away. The encounter was brief.
