I saw several cougars standing in line for the Bistro this morning when I drove through town. They've also been known to frequent Starbucks.

Hey Yorick,
Thanks for all the info.

A little off topic, but I worked for the NRDC not to long ago and they were trying to save the wolves out west.

They explained how reinstating the wolf had rebalanced the area. Less coyotes, healthier populations of deer, elk, etc.

To bad congress took them off the endangered list this year. Now they will be hunted down by Sarah Palin in her helicopter while she uses a machine gun. :-(

Yeah, Tester from Montana attached a rider to the spending bill delisting wolves from the ESA. That's a first.

Depends on the age of the Cougar you know..... Some like younger prey then the offerings at Starbucks and can often be seen lurking at other establishment......

I don't see that subspecies of the Eastern Cougar (not to be confused with the Miami, or LA Cougar) in becoming extinct in the near future even though they aren't procreating at a significant rate. But not for their lack of trying though......

So that ends that whole argument... case closed.

Its funny I would have never guessed that Conn would be the first state to actually nab one in the flesh.

The irony is that we were writing letters to the Twin Cities press and MN DNR not to kill the cat (they put out an ABP to shoot on sight though it hadn't done anything) as he moved through the suburbs.

Fortunately, it crossed into WI, where it was tracked for another two months before they lost track of it and appeared to be on its way back to MN,

If he'd found a female during any of the 2000 mile trek, he would have stopped.
