|Ingham County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Fri, Nov 16, 2012 at 2:44 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 11/15/2012
Deer hunting from ground blind. looking out to the west approx. 450 yds away to the west across a soybean field which had been tilled under. say a yellow or golden animal walking along the western edge of the soybean field from north to south. saw him at that distance with my naked eye. then watched as he continued going south until he cut into some deep grass. watched him through binocs for one to two minutes. estimating him to be approx three feet long, approx 1.5 to 2.0 feet at the shoulder with long smooth gait and full thick tail. did not appear dog like and thought too big to be coyote or bobcat.
