…the last known wild cougar in Michigan was killed near Newberry in 1906.
the past two years, five sets of cougar tracks and two photos have been
confirmed in Schoolcraft, Delta, Chippewa, Marquette and Menominee
In the Winter 2009 issue of Predator Hunting Magazine, wildlife biologist Serge Lariviere asks those claiming that cougars are roaming in the Northeast to prove it. With a confirmed mountain lion sighting in Michigan, which sits on the cusp of the Northeast, they’re getting closer to doing just that.
If it’s legal to hunt mountain lions in your neck of the woods or you’d like to take a trip to somewhere where it is, make sure to pick up a copy of the Fall 2008 issue of Predator Hunting Magazine to read John Waite’s excellent story on calling cougars.
