I am not familiar with the area nor was I familiar with the possible sightings.
I had dropped a student off at the Gunnery school and was traveling on church hill road near poppy swamp road. (not exactly sure but looking on google maps I believe this is the area).
It was dusk on Monday Nov 26. I saw an animal cross the road about 150 yards ahead. It headed into the wooded area. I think a large property was on the other side but not positive.
I immediately felt it looked different then anything I've seen before. It was sized to a medium to large dog, had a short snout but move and was muscled as a cat. I slowed down to see if I could see any more but could not.
I called my wife shortly after and told her what I saw and asked if it was possible that Mountain Lions live in CT. When I got home I googled mountain lions and ct and found this sight. The pictures I saw reconfirms on what I saw. Submitted by Geoff
