|Hillsdale County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Sat, Sep 8, 2012 at 10:27 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 9/8/2012
I was riding my bicycle home from work today when a deer crossed the road in front of me like it had just been shot at. I looked the direction it came from expecting more deer to jump out in front of me when I saw the cat slowly pacing in front of the woods and then crouching when I turned around and stopped to look at it. I shined my blinking light at it but it was unafraid. I saw another large cat in the same area about 3 years ago but that cat was very afraid and trying desperately to get away from me. I had scared that large cat by sneaking up on it on my bicycle on the North Country trail on my way to work on a rainy morning about 9:30am.
