Claire County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Thu, Jan 12, 2012 at 5:19 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 1/12/12
Time: 12:03 am
County: North end of Clare County
Sighting Description:
Driving south on US127 about midnight, going slow as it was late and didn't want to have an animal encounter. Saw something light colored that appreared to be bounding along the side of the road. its head kept catching the headlights., thought it was a deer tail but as we got closer and I slowed the animal appreared to be playing with its food! sort of prancing in the same place and putting its head to the ground. as we passed it looked right at us and it was a very large cat, no tufts on its ears, and light colored. the passanger in the car said that is a cougar. I tried to ractionalize that it wasn't but my bried glimpse said very large cat and not tufts. Since there was no traffic I stopped and backed up but we say nothing more. I wish we had gotten out to see if the cat had left any remians of its dinner or tracks.
