Just watched TV8 news out of GR. Had a story about Cougar sightings near Battle Creek, I live less than 2 miles from the intersection stated. Residents claim to have seen one, on and off, over the past few years. Know this has been debated over the years, but what do you think. Are there Cougars running around loose in the state? Escaped, one time pets or enough for a breeding population? ~~ Personally believe they are around in the BC area. Was over to a friends 20 years ago and a neighbor had 5 as pets, they say, I only saw 2 fairly young ones. A couple of years later this friend told me 3 escaped. A few years later my brother, an avid bike rider and science teacher, told me he had one run across a road along the river in front of him. Breeding population? I hope not, the Deer and 'yotes have no fear of people inside the city limits, just think of a fearless Cougar running around loose.
First it rained, then it blew, then it frizz, then it snew --- from an oldtimers gunning boat ~~ He understood what it's about!
