Granby, CT

At approximately 4:30pm on March 31, 2012, my family and I witnessed a large cat that we believe was a mountain lion at the west end of our property. Our first sighting was of a deer running through our yard and into the adjacent apple orchard. This was followed seconds later by a large cat with a long tail and muscular shoulders. My wife and mother both got a very good look at the cat while I saw it's overall shape and long tail. We were all in awe over the sighting and now know the mountain lion does in fact exist in CT.

  1. I agree with what you saw, as I WAS there and certainly saw the “whole” cat. It was quite a sight to see! It was not in hurry at all, just walking through the woods. The deer obviously sensed the cat’s presence, as it was spooked and headed up the hill away from where the cat was coming from.
