|Marquette County, Michigan - large feline sighted.
Reported Sat 10/3/2009 8:25 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 10/03/09
Time: 7:30 PM
Location Description: On my property on M-28 just inside of Chocolay Township across from Shotpoint.
I was sitting with my long bow in my ground blind waiting for a bear or deer to come into the bait. It was starting to get time to pack up, I saw what I thought was a deer coming in and was getting ready to set up the shot when it came into view. It was about 3/4 the size of a deer. It was not on the run, it was just walking through. It was definitely a cat, it was the color of a deer and I would guess it weighed approximately 75 lbs.
