About one month ago, driving on Hurlbutt Street in Wilton I saw a young cougar crossing the road as it leapt into the woods. After comparing what I saw and numerous photos on the web, I confirmed what I saw. This was not a bob cat as it’s tail was not “bobbed”. It was not a coyote as it was most definitely Feline. It was not a large domestic short hair as it was much too large and much too long, even stretched out leaping. It’s fur was very close to the body, tan in color, no stripes, no tufts. Of course Wilton Animal Control gave me the party line, but I know what I saw and it was a young cougar!
