|Leelanau County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Wed, Aug 17, 2011 at 3:11 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 8-16-11
County: Leelenau County
Location Description: Cougar seen crossing drive leading into SouthBeach resort (just south of the Homestead), raveling south to north across the driveway.s.
The big cat loped confidently and carefully across the road and under fallen trees and branches. Direction was headed north toward the Leelenau School. Quite striking how muscled and carved the cat's flanks and back are, even as we saw it from about 30-35 yards away. Truly magnificent animal (why would we allow these animals to be hunted ?!!!)
