On Wednesday, March 10, 2010 I left Huckleberry Hill Road and turned onto Chevaz at about 7:10 a.m. About 2/3rds of the way down something leaped from a residential lawn into the road and then took a second leap which put the hugh animal on the other side. At first I thought it was a deer, but then realized it was lower to the ground and had a pretty long tail. When I pulled up along side of where it landed, it was walking away from the road into the wood line. It was a large cat, having a tail that appeared to be almost as long as its body, sweeping downward, almost touching the ground with a slight upward twist at the end. I believed I had seen a mountain lion. We have bobcats in our area, but this definitely was not a bobcat. I called the DEP who questioned me at lengths in particular about the tail, and finally said he really thought I had seen a large cat, but couldn’t confirm that it was a mountain lion.
