|Bay County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Wed, Aug 8, 2012 at 9:31 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 7-14-12
Time: 11:30 p.m.
I observed a large animal, tan / brown in color with a long tail, long body and small head. I first noticed it standing in the street and it slowly moving north into the woods. The animal was not startled by the house light turning on or the opening of the door. I wanted to get closer to the animal to determine what it was, but after realizing it wasn't a dog I returned to the house. I couldn't believe what I was seeing and had to convince myself it was more cat-like rather than dog-like. After discussing my sighting with my mother, she mentioned she had seen the same animal a week earlier running down the street. It appeared to have been startled by the noise of the fireworks festival and was running toward the woods.
