Cougar Sightings??

A work acquaintance of mine was returning from a Canadian fishing trip about a week and half ago. Some where in the vicinity of Minong or so along highway 53 he says he saw what he swears was a cougar. This guy doesn't seem prone to just making up tales, allegedly had his two teenaged grandsons along as witness. Anyone here have or hear of anything verifying stories like this?? Kind of cool, yet a bit unnerving if you walk northern streams as i occasionally do alone. So, what say ye?

Thanks,

bob p.

"I also just saw the video. Couger, mountain lion... Im not sure how you can possibly think its a legitimate African lion. You do realize they are like 4 times bigger then a couger don't you?" Sounds like your the one who won't let other's have an opinion! I am merely reporting things said by experts. You must be one of those too?

We apparently aren't entitled to our opinions because that makes us bullys... its whatup's world, we just live in. I see the video and I see a mountain lion. Unless its proved otherwise that is what I believe. I don't apologize for logic, reasoning, and my honest opinion.

Lakeshiner, The article says "Mountain lion sightings have occurred in Milwaukee as recently as two years ago." That does not say its probably a mountain lion, it is merely a statement that they have been sighted. I know people who were there when the dnr looked at the video. This is more first hand knowledge than anyone here has. I was simply making a comment about the "lion" in the news. Then people who know nothing about the situation but what they see on tv like to chime in as all knowing. The news is not always correct in reporting.

It sure looks like a mountain lion in that video. My only problem with the video is the overall quality. Why are all of these unconfirmed sightings of strange sights always extremely grainy. That phone she was holding up is a solid phone and should have been able to take a way better video than that. She might have had it zoomed in too much, or it's fake? They did shoot that mountain lion in Chicago a few years ago so anything is possible.

This article is local and says its most likely a mountain lion. It has the real cell phone video and at the end it also references the fake video.

I Googled it last night and reportedly it was a video of a lion in India with the voice overdubbed.

If you are insinuating I think I'm a biologist you are sadly mistaken. I said a dnr warden responded to look at the original video on the original phone, and they said it was a lion not a mountain lion or cougar or whatever name game you want to play. I can bet a paycheck they can identify animals slightly better than you. And it isnt all that difficult to buy exotic animals on the internet. Try Google some time. I'm sure you will have another great response. You a few others are bullies on this site and always have to be right about everything! It gets old and many people are sick of it.

Whats the difference between a panther and a cougar?

I still believe that 99% of the cougar "sightings" are a case of mistaken identity.
