|Phoenix, Michigan -cougar sighted.
Reported Aug 19, 2007 2:56 PM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 8/14/07
Time: 7:20 pm
Location Description: Seen at the edge of m-26 approximately one mile north of the city of Phoenix -crossing the road in a northeast direction . The area is wooded with the Eagle river paralleling m-26.
lon=-88.282737; lat=47.396272 I saw a silhouette of a large feline with a long tail entering the woods. The tail hung close to the rear legs and curled up at the end. The feline was approximately two feet high at the level of its back. It appeared to be a dark tan color. However, low levels of light at the edge of the woods made it difficult to discern the feline's color from a shadow.
