    There have been plenty of cougar sightings in Michigan. DNR is hoping most are just pets that have been released. I think they would rather not see a population sustaining itself. Would mean money and manpower to manage them. Cubs obviously (duh!) means the adults are getting together.

    If you don't believe that they are coming back to Michigan, believe it. They're also showing up in northern Ohio. No joke. Back at Ashland U, one of my professors told a story about his friend that found a "cat" on the side of the road. He pulled over the truck, got out, and approached the "cat"....

    He woke up 10 minutes later, laid out and hurting bad. The "cat" was gone.

    Turns out, it was a Catamount Kitten and momma protected her kid by knocking this guy senseless.

    This is one example of their attack method that I mentioned on the post about the cougar following the deer. They attack using a "deathpunch" that knocks their prey out or dead.

    Del you are correct about not being a bobcat, I didn't see the tail at first. If it's a housecat that is some cat and I'm glad I don't feed it but, photos are deceiving.

    after seeing this picture I believe it is a small couger. I researched cougars in Michigan and Other websites. Michigan denies that there are cougars in Michigan but with frequent sitings around the state in both the Upper and Lower penisulas I feel strongly that this is a small cougar.

    This is still up in the air for me and most of us. At first I was convinced that it was a baby cougar, having seen them, then I wasn't so sure because of scale, and the fact that there are housecats with similar patterns to baby cougars. Then I changed my mind again.

    Now I am thinking that it's probably a young cougar, but it still might be a house cat.

    Any experts in the house? Any more decisive evidence?

    Young cougars don't have adult cougar colors. They have a brownish spotty pattern instead of solid tan.

    Look closely at the shape of the head and the colors in the tail and body. Compare them to other pics of Cougars. Bobcat and Lynx have short tails. The tree is dvd size at the cat's level. That is definitely is a large housecat case closed.

    It looks more to me like a bobcat, or in your case up north, maybe a lynx.

    It's a baby cougar! Whether or not our DNR in MI wants to admit we have cougars or not, there is too many sightings and stories about these cats. The tail is too long to be a house cat. My parents live up around Fife Lake MI, and the neighbors horses got tore up from a cougars claws that jumped out of a tree onto their backs! Check out the website at www.michigancougar.com

    Considering that, it could still be a jumbo house cat.

    I just went out in the woods to look at the tree. The bottom is about paper plate size. But up where "the couger" is it is about the size of a dvd maybe inch or two bigger.

    One more thing my brother seen a huge black cat like thing during bow season.

    Looking at the patterns on it I would say a house cat.
