Several days ago one was seen in Menomonee Falls less than a mile from my home . Lots of woods and swamp and some deer .
Watch your pets !!
Here is the video of the Brookfield Cougar looking in the window.
I saw that on the news today, looking right into the house window. Kinda creepy when they get that curious.
Just saw one reported in Brookfield. Pretty cool video.
If from SD, that's a long way. Where can one cross the Mississippi realistically? Must be pretty far north to go for the cougars...
In the summer of 2016 my firend and I saw a big, muscular cougar on the Brunet River, 20 miles north of Ladysmith. Comments I have seen indicate that these cats are roaming males from the Dakotas.
Yes, there was one a few yrs ago in Price co. and the DNR confirmed it was a mountain lion. Dont know where the cat went but I think they should have tagged it to see where it goes.
Since Ive never seen one I dont give a hoot about cougars in wisc. BUT their presence have been verified with evidence by the DNR.
DNA samples from hair or scat conclude the presence of several males originating from the Black Hills SD area. No females so no breeding. This is science and not hearsay.
ihookem, if you click on the map, looks like there have been sighting near your cabin.
I wouldn't say there is no chance it's a cougar but that the chances are very slim. My uncle lives up near Hixton and knows basically all the Amish and farmers in the area and he hasn't heard of cougars in the area. The reason I say there is a slight chance is because there have been confirmed sightings in Wisconsin and they did kill one in Chicago a few years ago, but the true confirmations are very rare.
