I was on my way to church on a Saturday morning, early morning the first weekend in December 2003. I was coming down New Haven Avenue in Milford (from downtown to Woodmont) by the old Ship's Wheel Restaurant location. Running across the street from the left side was a very large tan cat with a long tail (about 3 to 3 1/2 feet tall)--it looked like an adult lioness. I was in total shock as I later realized this was probably a mountain lion. My children who were in the card saw this also as did my friend who was traveling in a car behind us.
