|Benzie County, Michigan - cougar sighting.

Date of Observation: 7/13/2012
Time: 7:00 pm
While dining in the Brookside Inn we looked out the window to the South and in back of an adjacent business we saw a very large yellow/tan wild cat (about the size of a large dog) with a thin long tail. It sauntered around the asphalt parking lot and then walked into the brush consisting of tall grass, wildflowers, trees and bushes. We were so shocked to see such a large cat that we couldn't believe it was something like a cougar, but after we did some research on the internet we were sure it was a cougar. Unbelieveable to see it so close to us next to a restaurant! It was beautiful.
