  •  My son lives in Bozeman. (6+ / 0-)

    Last year in the late summer an adolescent came down and killed several of the neighbors, goats.  He hung out in the unmown pasture behind their houses which have no other houses between them and Green Mtn.  My son and his wife has two girls.  That was a nervous summer.  They hung out for him one night, setting one of the goat carcasses in the field.  One shot by the farmer (who also has young kids) missed him and he was gone.  

    Not many people believe me but I saw a pre-adolescent in Washington, ME about 17 years ago crossing Rte 17 from a state base yard  to wooded area next to Bump Hill Road - fronted by a hunting supply store!

    I know what cougars look like. I used to be one.  WSU had a live cougar mascot when I went there.  He was cooped up.  Very cruel.  They got rid of her ("Butch" - so I just assumed) in the late 70s I think.  

    The diarist should drop the "?" from the title.  You can tell by the muzzle and the tail. That's a full grown one.

    Great cougar sub plot in "Cloudsplitter" by Banks, btw.
