    http://www.fws.gov/northeast/ecougar...nal-111610.pdf found this study on the eastern puma. Very interesting on p.10, describes a study where 322 possible scratching/pheromones samples were taken. Ten were puma in origin with the numbers being;4 north american/ 4 belonging to central or south american origin and 2 non conclusive. Never say never but imho it seems if there are sightings they are most likely released species. Apologies if someone already posted this study in this thread..

    No track picture. No interview with the supposed witness. No interview with the cops. Other than that, one fantastic piece of reporting. And yes, the pun is intentional.

    I guess we will put it in the drawer with the Elvis sightings and alien abduction reports?

    Oh you, with your evidence based approached. I could easily see someone thinking a bobcat was a mountain lion if they had no idea how big a mountain lion actually was, but the size difference is quite stark.

    This is above Albany, NY. 'Several residents' called the town about a Mountain Lion sighting(s).
