Mountain Lion sighting-Old Furnace S.P./South Killingly

At 2:05am I was returning home from Hartford airport, and exiting the Rt 695 connector at the Olearis Hill exit(unmarked). As I was traveling up the exit ramp, a large mountain lion darted across the road, barely missing my front bumper. I stopped the car to verify, but she/he was gone. I was completely alert when it occurred, and it definitely was not a doe, bobcat, dog, or any other domestic animal. The height was roughly 32"(visible over the hood of my car), and his body length was roughly equal to the width of my car.

  1. My husband and I saw a mountain lion in central village a year ago. It ran in front of our car and looked like it was carrying one of its baby’s by the scruff of the neck. Yesterday we saw a bobcat in the Killingly area on rte 12.
