I saw a mountain lion cross in front of my car yesterday in Torrington, CT around 6:00pm... I initially saw it from a distance away as I was driving down the road and it was casually walking across the road. When I got closer it got spooked, turned around, went back across the road, but when it get back to the side it came from it turned around again and bolted back across the road and jumped over the railing. This occurred at a location where a stream goes under a bridge. It was about the size of a full grown german shepherd.
