On Wednesday, Oct 19th, my daughter’s dogs were going nuts, trying to get out of the house. It was a little after 6:00am on Bethel Rd, in Griswold, down the Preston end of the road. We put them out on their runs, thinking it may have been a fox or something like that, and they ran around in circles, barking, growling, digging the dirt, continuing to carry on. We did not see anything, but she was on her way out, so she beeped the horn as she drove up the driveway. As she turned to go up the road, a mountain lion crossed the street in front of her car and ran down Dutka Lane, headed towards Pachaug Pond. It was the size of a large dog, golden brown with a long tail.
