    Is this in the same area of town where one was sighted earlier this year? Pictures of tracks and reported to DEEP, but no definitive answer.

    Ted, put a game camera out there! It’s pretty cool to go fetch it every couple weeks , hook it to your tv, and see what’s out there! Quite interesting……and maybe you’ll get a pic of this cat!

    Ted-
    Do you live by the Valley Rd area? A friend of mine that lives near us on Valley- has also seen a mountain lion cross her backyard. She said she knew it was a mountain lion because it was huge and had a really long tail. She mentioned it to me because I live off Valley. In your sighting I see you mention a land trust and wondered if it was the one near valley by benedict hill. I walk there often with my daughters and have been wondering if a large cat would live around there being it is so secluded.

    On a side note, I haven’t seen a mountain Lion but I swear I saw a wolf. My father, husband and I were in my kitchen and my father spotted it first across the pond. It was huge. We’ve had coyote here a bunch over the years and I know what they look like. This one I saw was light in color-gray and white. I’d say the big difference was the long thin legs, coloring and size. All three of us couldn’t believe it. I thought wolves weren’t even in NY again until I did a little research. A farmer killed one in MA recently and the DEEP admit that wolves could be coming from canada into new england. I have noticed our deer sightings have dropped over this last year. Across the pond in our woods- deer used to sleep there esp over the winter. They were not there last year. I made a joke to my sister that maybe we have a large predator in the area- after I heard about the mountain lion and saw what i believe was a wolf- I know why the deer aren’t around my house much!!
