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.

And by a grainy phone video you are now a biologist... The only person that said it was a 'lion' was the person that saw it. My guess is they see a big kitty they immediately just say 'lion'... most people don't even know that a couger and mountain lion are the same exact thing. Its a heck of lot more likely its isn't an 'African' lion and is actually a couger.

Hey rob, I suppose when lions are born they are full grown? You must be right!

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?

It was an African lion, not a mountain lion. I saw the video.
