On my way to work at 4:30 am. Traveling on M-61, 15.5 miles east of Gladwin. Cougar was sitting in the middle of the road eating road kill. The cat turned and looked at me but wouldnt move. I then blew the horn and startled the cat, he then jumped over 10 feet and darted into the woods, heading north. It appeared to be between 120-130 lbs, golden in color, long swooped tail touching the ground.
