  • Gail G.18 Sep, 2013 - Winnetka, CA@Mark who said if a mountainLion comes in his yard hes going to shoot it, you are a bully and coward. Does it know its someone's yard? I could see if it was attacking you or your child then yes but if it just is walking in your yard? You are paranoid and to quick to shoot something innocent that was put on this earth that had its land taken away. That is such a prick of an attitude.Learn to appreciate nature and look online about what to do if one is near you. I believe you dont stare it in the eye for that is challenging it as another animal would do. I read to make yourself look big by flapping your arms around and shouting actually scares them away.Your local animal shelters have info on what to do when spotting certain wildlife.Also if u have small kids and pets and live near hills or mountainy areas etc why dont u make a big play enclosure, a large fenced in area for your pets to be safe outside as well as your kids. Isnt it worth the cost and security. If u live in that type of area especially well its part your fault for moving there. They have to live on some land somewhere u know and they have to eat u know. Be smart and proactive instead of Mr Macho like these cops that are shooting people's own dogs in their yards saying they feared it, and then laughing about it later with their cop buddies about the way it flopped around before it died etc, knowing they got away with it and comparing it with the day previous that their cop buddy shot!!

  • Barbara W.13 Apr, 2013 - Lenox, MAI definitely saw a mountain lion near the old Cameron School about ten years ago. I was running, and I could see him from the distance. I thought it was a cat, but as I got closer and closer, I noticed the odd behavior. It just stood there motionless and stared at me. When I got about a block away I could see that it was not a cat because it had a very long tail (about 2 feet) that it was waving. Other than that it was completely motionless staring me in the eye. I was a disconcerted and at the last minute turned up High Street and ran around it. As soon as I got home I went on line to see if I could find out what it was I had seen. After all, any kind of lion is nowhere near to the periphery of my mind. I’m not an animal kingdom adherent, and why would I ever expect to see a lion in the Berkshires in Lenox? About a week ago, my daughter saw one in our back yard in Lenox. I can tell you, she was terrified, as was her dog.

  • Gary M.19 Mar, 2013 - Brookfield, CTThe Ct. DEEP should stop the bull and admit tp our citizens that there are mountain lions throughout the State of Ct. In 2005 I saw one in the tree canopy above my Brookfield property, which is a steep hill covered in tall trees and brush with paths in between. It was slowly loping through the forest and I could see it's full form from my back bedroom window, large, about 100 to 125 lb. frame, tan with whitish belly and long tail with a darkened tip. I've seen coyote and deer back of my property, plenty of squirrel and chipmunks, but this was a majestic looking animal - definitely a cougar, not a bobcat.
  • Geoffrey H.22 Feb, 2013 - Stafford springs, CTif we want to make informed decisions regarding wildlife management and preserving our natural resources, we need to end the "head in the sand" approach currently in use. There have been multiple sightings in Connecticut, and the official position is that Mountain Lions aren't in the state.
  • Diane N.28 Jan, 2013 - Griswold, CTMany areas in CT that have repeated sighting are entitled to be informed in every way possible about the habitation of these mountain lions. There are families with little ones & pets that could fall in harm way due to being unaware. It's time for some wisdom & enough public coverage/information to know what to do if they have a encounter & knowledge about the mountain lion/bob cat/ panther right in their back yard. Ignorance is not bliss.
  • deborah l.25 Jan, 2013 - vergennes, ILsaw a cougar in southern ill crossing the road, i stopped and let it pass. He stopped and looked at me then ran into the woods. This was in 2012.
  • John Q.22 Jan, 2013, NYMiranda, this site is not addressing mountain lion extinction, but rather the fact they are making a return to CT and the northeast. Matter of fact, from what I've read, and I've read a lot on this issue - they may never have gone away at all... with many people reporting they've seen them throughout the decades of the 20th century. With the internet, we just know about these sightings more now. Also, I know of 3 very credible people who have seen mountain lions in the Berkshires in the past 10 years. The governments of the northeast states should come clean and let people know these animals are out there in the woods - or sooner or later someone is going to find out the hard way.
  • miranda s.22 Jan, 2013 - Orlando, FLwe need to put a ban on mountain lion hunting. this hunting season is getting out of hand and these hunters are killing more then they should. it's obvious that these hunters don't give a shit about the wildlife and if the mountain lion becomes extinct like the eastern cougar all you hunters will only have yourselves to blame

  • Rebecca H.10 Sep, 2012 - PlymouthTwo years ago, I heard some commotion over by my chicken coop. I went outside while it was still dark out, but probably the wee hours of the morning. I stood there and it was eerily silent. It was a beautiful and quiet night. I assumed it had been a raccoon that had run away. I just stood there on my back porch in the dark and right as I motioned to go back indoors, I heard the loudest, longest and most ferocious hiss ever. It sounded like I was about to be eaten by an african lion. I will never forget the force projecting behind the hiss. Scared the heck out of me. Working with only the dim light that shone through the sliders and into the woods, it was not clearly illuminated. But I did see the bum of whatever animal was retreating into the woods. It was short fur and golden in color. At the time, I thought any kind of lion in Plymouth, ma would have been virtually impossible. But atbthe same time, i couldn't imagine what else it could have been. People suggested a fox or a raccoon was to blame, but I always maintain that if they had been there a few feet away as i was, engulfed in the rage of the loudest most furious, earth shattering hiss you can imagine, you would have thought very differently. Not to mention, the bum of this animal was no fox size. I'll forever think it was a mountain lion although I'm the first to admit that the visual encounter wasn't nearly as convincing as the vocal one. All, I'm saying is that just to hear that mountain lions are all over Connecticut makes me feel validated for feeling, for two years, what I knew I'd be ridiculed for even thinking, was actually possible after all. I've done much research after I experienced this encounter, desperate to know what it was that was within feet of eating me. I've always had my hunch and it sounds like I'm posting this experience among a group of supporters who may understand my conviction of possibility.
  • anonymous a.08 Sep, 2012 - harwinton, CTThere is a video surfacing on a Facebook page of 2 mountain lions fighting on the side of the road in Harwinton, CT. It is a cell phone video so it isn't the greatest quality, however, it is clear enough to distinguish that these ARE mountain lions and NOT some other animal. This should be enough proof for the DEEP to finally publically aknowledge they are here in this state. Hopefully someone can get this video to someone in the right position to take this to the next step.

  • T.J. B.11 Aug, 2012Education is key. And, yes, we need to both respect and protect the mountain lion. A few folks here have said that the settlers had the right idea when they shot these animals. Well, the Colonists also hanged "witches," kept slaves, and drove out Quakers and other people whose religious views they disagreed with. I don't see anybody advocating a return of those "ideas."

  • Al F.04 Apr, 2012, NYIn Nov 2011 there was a dead mountain lion cub on the left shoulder of southbound I-81 just past the exit for Whitney Point. The most notable feature of the cat was the long tail that wound around the cat which was lying on its side-and was long enough to extend to mid torso-clearing the legs with enough room to who gravel between the legs (probably in a crouched position) and tail. Had a very round catlike face with some dark markings (lines) on it. coloring was similar to a red cat (so, orange/tan). They are here, they are beautiful and hopefully they will be protected.

  • George W.21 Feb, 2012 - Winchester Center, CTThe DEP another Government Agency out of Control... For over 30 years , thousands of people have seen Mt. Lions in Connecticut and have been told by the DEP they were mistaken... There are No Mt. Lions in Connecticut ! , was their Chant year in and year out ... Why ? When one is finally hit by a car on the Parkway with many witnesses the plan must change ... A " released pet " will not work as tests can prove this invalid .. So the new plan is it migrated from South Dakota and settled in Greenwich , Ct. A quote“ This mountain lion traveled a distance of more than 1,500 miles from its original home in South Dakota – representing one of the longest movements ever recorded for a land mammal and nearly double the distance ever recorded for a dispersing mountain lion.” ... " He was spotted three times—in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Connecticut—before a collision with a SUV on a highway ended its life." I guess the ill fated cat was wearing a Sign " Greenwich , Ct.here I come "... The arrogance of this organization , dismissing the reports of The People for decades and when the proof is there , creating a fairy tale to cover up their decades of denial ... Why ? Why ? Why ? When people Lie there is usually a very good reason ... Could it be they have been covering something up?

  • Sean S. W.16 Feb, 2012 - Washington Depot, CTWhy the authorities continue to deny these cats are here is an insult to us all. Far too many sightings by hunters/ outdoors people have been reported only to be discounted as mistaken identities (we are seeing Bobcats) Baloney! Ihave seen many Bobcats in my life and in the last 2 years seen 2 Mountain Lions in Washington Ct. Luckily no one has had a run in with these guys (or gals) but it is inevitable and when it happens its going to create a major issue. Bears are going to be an issue soon as well. We all have a place here on earth but close quarters with a Mountain Lion and suburbia spells disaster as a slow moving human/ pet is far more attractive than a fast moving deer that they were supposedly brought in to control. How many deer is a mountain lion going to eat in a day/ week year, Seems like we would need a hell of a lot more Mountain Lions! What a great idea!
  • Jennifer S.13 Feb, 2012 - Portland, CTThere are Mountian Lions! I found tracks in my yard, and dead animals remains in the wood, that could have been left over from cougar kill.
  • Tina M.11 Feb, 2012, CTLast week on 2/9/12, I was hiking up in the Taconic Range in Millerton, NY up to South Brace. On the way down I sat for a bit to admire the view from a vantage pt. and heard a large animal shuffling in the woods which i was worried was a dog so I took my pepper spray out since i've been bitten before and do not enjoy meeting unleashed dogs on the trail. In any event whatever it was went by but it sounded like something rather large, so am thinking oh-uh big dog running loose, keep alert. Started to head down steep incline to car around 4pm at look-out rock right before trail descends steeply, I looked up 1/4 mile to "my peak" to the S.(the old red trail to unnamed peak) and saw a HUGE LION, WALKING RIGHT UP THE RIDGELINE, where I often walk and sit enjoying the view! I watch PBS shows about wild animals and this looked exactly like an african lion (no mane). It was HUGE like 6 ft., big head and very powerful, muscular looking. It was a yellowish tan color definitely NOT a deer, dog or any other animal. I did not think to look for a tail but it seemed to me it had none or it was not sticking out. It walked out on the ridgeline just like the big cats you see on tv in the african wilderness stalking their prey, that type of gait. Needless to say I am very upset. I hike up there and in Salisbury, CT all the time and now i read that people have had sightings in Kent and other places in CT I hike too. I also read that these are PREDETORY animals not just carnivores, by nature they stalk their prey quietly, unseen and then most typically pounce from behind. I live to hike so hope all the reports will be taken seriously as a matter of public safety. I don't mean that the lions should be killed but found and anesthetized and sent to a fenced in wilderness sanctuary before someone like me gets severely injured or killed, they should definitely not be allowed to roam the AT or Taconic Range hiking trail corridor. I know I certainly would not be able to fight off such a huge and aggressive animal with my bare hands or even hiking stick and pepper spray is useless when it's windy. The public needs to be educated and warned now. I read alot of comments along the lines of "great the mountain lions are here how wonderful" not realizing or aware of the attacks on humans out west most of whom where out hiking or biking and not antagonizing the lions. What a horrible way to die. Obviously all NE states must work together on this, that Lion i saw may easily travel into CT, or MA. I do wonder whether that animal i'd heard earlier was in fact the mountain lion I saw, gives me chills to think i may of been stalked or watched as a potential meal or kill.
  • Daria V.11 Feb, 2012 - Norwalk, CTMountain Lions live! In fact, they should be the state animal (not the whale).
  • Susan M.11 Feb, 2012 - PLYMOUTH, CTI think that the Mountian Lions are living in our state and we have the right to know this. I hike in many areas of the state where Mt. lion sightings have been reported but not confermed. I have not seen a Mountain Lion (I hope too) in my hiking adventrues. However I have seen a Bobcat and many Coyote's and I know that their is no way one could confuse a Coyote (looks like a mattad hair German Shepard dog) or a Bobcat (very much smaller cat and small tail with like knots in it) for a Mt. lion. I think it is time for the DEP to come clean and stop insulting residents of CT. that have seen these beautiful animals and educate residents that their are so few Mouintian Lions in the state that your chances of actually seeing one are so slim to none. So their is no danger of residents coexisting with Big Cats and make it a big fine if anyone shoots one.
  • William C.09 Feb, 2012 - Torrington, CTI've seen a mountain lion numerous times while deer hunting in Salisbury. I presume it is the same cat! Would love to talk to Bill Betty I think he's doing the right thing we need the DEEp to acknowledge these big cats before someone gets killed

As I approached mile marker 130, I saw what I thought was a very large dog at first, it's back was to me, all one color, honey, I noticed a very long tail, and thought it odd. I slowed, and as I got closer, realized this was a big animal, and I came almost to a stop, when it turned and looked at me, I realized what it was, a mountain lion. I was so scared I stepped on the gas and took off. I was about feet away from it when it looked at me, was no mistaking the face.

Its their natural habitat. That said, folks in New England need to push hard for protective status, more research, and efforts to keep open corridors of uninterrupted (or minimally interrupted) wilderness so that these animals can migrate back. This is not the first occasion of animals returning back to their habitat in New England (e.g., beaver, moose, coyotes), and like many others said, protection is desperately needed.
  • Judy H.21 Jan, 2012 - Chapmanville, WVI have lived in Logan County, WV for 17 years, at my current address for 13 yrs. Since living at this address, my family and I have directly seen (looked at) 3 mountain lions, one tan in color, and 2 black (black panthers)..a mother and cub. My husband and I tracked the panthers and the tracks of a deer (white tail). Obviously she was teaching her cub to hunt, as the tracks were of running animals. We also hear them occasionally..and there is no mistaking what you are hearing. It is obvious these animals are not extint east of the Mississippi...and I personally do not understand why this is being said. They do need to be protected...but they are far from extinction!

If God put it here to begin with, who are we to say it shouldnt be here!..We were put here too, so if we dont like our neighbors do we force them out, or kill them!!.. NO!! We find ways to coexist with each other. Which is what many states are doing!.. 2.) If we love our natural fauna, and flora of our local landsacpes in the northeast then we must support these beautiful cats to control the deer population that is an overpopulated animal that is doing a number on our landscapes! The Eastern Cougar may be extinct but the same people that are ignorrant towards the Cougar's importance will one day not be able to pick plants etc that are native to this area because the white tailed deer is making them go extinct at an alarming rate!.3.) reintroduction of these animals will help bridge unknown or suspected colonies that may be out there with others and continue the overall breeding and stabilization of cougars in the east and migration corridors within the appalachian range to even possibly connect to the endangered and near the brink population of the Florida Panther!.. Yes I support reintroduction as well as proper government support of our nations beloved landscapes and animals that I know we all love and are affected by it1

  • Maria A.30 Dec, 2011 - Seymour, CTI used to ride to work with a CT DEP (now the DEEP)employee about 8-9 years ago and he said that the DEP was well aware that cougars live in this state. At that time there had been sightings in Oxford and Monroe.
  • Carolyn S.26 Dec, 2011, CTMountain lions not only live in CT, but have been proliferating for years with populations appearing to grow steadilly (perhaps with the rise of deer). I have had sightings from 1986 to 2003 and continue to occasionally see tracks. All different parts of CT. The one recently spotted and reported on the news of being a lone, transient animal from Minnesota...I don't buy that story for one minute. My father saw one in CT back in the 1940s, as well. They exist and the state neglecting to recognise their existance is almost criminal because of the potential threat they pose. The greatest thing to provide safety from mtn lions to all CT residents is simply knowing the animals are here.

Hopefuly it is dispatched quickly. An animal may be shot if it is harrassing .livestock. This one chased a horse into the road where it was hit. Id call that harrassment.

  • Peggy R.26 Nov, 2011 - Terryville, CTAbout 8 years ago I saw a Mountain Lion in my back yard. I have 5 acres quite close to route 6. Saw this in broad daylight. No mistaking that it was a mountain Lion. There is a stream at the bottom of my property and I was checking out a beaver dam. The cat climbed the tree, sat in the fork of the tree and wrapped it's tale around it self and looked down on me. Needless to say I was really scared. It was about 60 ft. away from me and I had a clear view. I called my dog and backed away slowly until I was behind the barn and out of sight and headed for home in a hurry.
  • Roger P.26 Nov, 2011 - Westport, CTPlease encourage the return of the cougar to Connecticut. Cougars could prey on deer and help control the overabundant deer population. Lyme disease could be reduced, and ornamental shrubbery might once again be able to thrive, without the protection of high fences.

  • David H.21 Nov, 2011 - Norfolk, CTIn 1981 while driving a rural road at night between Goshen and Norfolk, CT, I saw a large animal in my headlights crossing the road. By the time my headlights were close enough to reveal detail beyond the pure tan color so typical of cougars, all I could see were the hind legs and long tail disappearing rapidly into the roadside brush. 30 years later I remain 98 percent certain that what I saw was a cougar, and have only ever seen any since at zoos, which only confirm my certainty of what I saw. I have never seen such a critter since, in extensive wilderness travels throughout Canada, Alaska, The Smoky Mountains, Maine and New Hampshire.

Mountain Lions are magnificent animals that are being pushed to the edge of extinction by man. It is long past time that we accept that animals have a right to live and deserve to be left in peace. The Puma doesn't want to be around humans, they want a safe area to live and raise their young. Let CT be a leader in showing the way for peaceful co-existance.

ALL wildlife needs to be protected from these dangerous killer humans. If common sense won't prevail, then laws need to be in place. Humans are the only animals who kill everything they fear. Try a little compassion. Respect the earth, wildlife, environment, and one another.

  • Michael R.10 Nov, 2011 - New Haven, CTDEEP needs to acknowledge at least the possibility that puma are re-populating local areas and should take pride that the eco-system is healthy enough to sustain apex predators like the puma. This something to be celebrated (with a healthy dose of realism that these are not pets and human-wildlife conflict is a possibility (that can be mitigated) and a census of puma in the Northeast should be investigated, rather simply denied outright by DEEp without bothering to do the appropriate studies.
