Cougar sighted in Buffalo County

MONDOVI (AP) — A cougar is roaming western Wisconsin’s Buffalo County.

The cougar was photographed by an outdoorsman using a trail camera on land between Gilmanton and Mondovi after dark Saturday, July 14th. A biologist from the Wisconsin DNR verified the sighting after discovering tracks in the area.

It’s only the second verified cougar sighting in Wisconsin this year. The DNR has been able to confirm visits from just six male cougars to the state since 2008.

Cougar photographed in Michigan's Marquette County

BATH, Mich. - The Michigan Wildlife Conservancy (MWC) says it has confirmed the presence of a cougar in southern Marquette County.

The cougar was photographed by a cased and padlocked trail camera on private property on June 1, 2012.

The property owners will also share their information with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) but do not wish to be publicly identified.

Dr. Patrick Rusz, Director of Wildlife Programs for the Conservancy, and Michael Zuidema, a retired DNR forester, verified the trail camera’s location on a well-worn wildlife trail atop a wooded ridge

The camera has also photographed wolves, coyotes, fishers and numerous other species at the same site over a four year period.

They’ve been seen as far East as CT and MA. It was widely denied until one got hit on one of the highways in CT. It was tracked back to the Dakotas.

Big kitty. A coyote killed a friend's dog this week and the postmistress said she sees coyotes in the yard in front of the church across the street some mornings.

Went camping in a remote area week and a half ago and woke up to fresh Cougar (or Mountain Lion, as we call ‘em out West here) tracks all around my tent.

I live in Jenison, MI. I have Coyotes in the back yard. Have my .17 cal ready and waiting. Kind of residential around me but I have 10 acres right in the middle of town. With my nice neighbors and the new fireworks law here in Meechigan, I dont have to worry about reported gunshots.
