|Iron County, Michigan - cougar sighting.
Reported Mon, Aug 23, 2010 at 10:00 AM to www.savethecougar.org
Date of Observation: 08/21/2010
Time: 6:15 pm
County: Iron County , MI / Iron River
Location Description: Apple Blossum Trail. Trail in between river bank / woods / brush and the RV Park on Genesee St. Iron River, MI
Walking down trail towards the Frisbee golf area. Last RV in the park on my right, wooded area / brush / river to my left. Noticed out of the corner of my eye something run across trail toward river and jump into brush. As I walked by moving / shaking brush looked down and seen the cougar head looking at me, it was crouched down. As soon as I turned my head and looked at it, it turned around and ran into deeper brush toward the river.Round face with whitish face around big yellow eyes. It really freaked me out and I walked off of the trail into the RV park. No one was out at the RV park on the side of the trail, there were a few people out on the opposite side of the park though. Seemed to me it was coming from the last RV parked on the right (which no one was there).
