  1. Yet another Ontario Biologist says: “Wild cougars have been known across eastern Quebec & NE Ontario for well over 150 years….why U.S. Officials have ignored or deny their presence, probably is because they do not want new englanders to know they exist so close to the northeast U.S. states”!

  2. That’s a very confusing video. 40-50 lbs? Mountain Lions weigh two to three times that much. They only have spots when they’re kittens. And while this cat does appear to have a long tail, it doesn’t look quite long enough.

    Wonder if it could one of those weird Savannah Cats or something…

    1. That is very clearly a small mountain lion. Keep in mind, a lion doesn’t go from tiny kitten to 150lb beast in a matter of days. Its a long process. The tail is definitely much, much longer than a bobcat tail.

  3. Thats a simple house cat…it may be a big one, but the gait is that of a small, small feline……theres nothing to compare it for size……..big cats don’t bounce around like that, even 40 50 lb ones……

    Nobodies paying attention to it cause its a practical joke.

  4. that’s what I’ve seen many times. Below, location and year

    A mutilated deer, reported to Cheshire police, 2010 (cop took video with her phone, scouted the area, the head was gone – could also possibly be coyote kill).
    Have also heard mountain lions “cat-calls” near the Quinnipiac River near Southington (Rec Park) and near Coginchaug River off of Main St. in Middlefield
