Drove up about 100 feet from a young moutain lion

My husband this morning called me from Bennetts Bridge Road in Sandy Hook, CT - not far from our home - he was driving towards route 34 and there was a mountain lion on Bennetts Bridge walking across the street. Long tail about the size length wise of a 8 year old long tail the works. It was a young mountain lion not old and certainly not a bob cat. He was a little freaked out about it - I ended up calling animal control and they said they didn't go out for mountain lion calls. In any event I am sure that what he reported was a mountain lion - he said it definitely wasn't a coyote or a dog.   Submitted by:Denise Buzy-Pucheu
