There’s a mountain lion in the backyard!

A couple evenings ago my wife and I were watching deer in our field. As I’m looking at the deer with binoculars, she yells “THERE’S A MOUNTAIN LION IN THE BACKYARD”!! Sure enough, CLEAR AS DAY, there is a mountain lion sitting in our backyard, maybe 50-60 feet from us. I looked at it through the glasses, even though it was plain to see with the naked eye. We’ve had bobcats, dogs, cats, woodchucks, coyote, whatever else people are going to say we saw, but this was a mountain lion. This was on the Cheshire/Prospect line. August 2011.

  1. Where are the pictures ?

  2. I’m glad to read this. In July 2015 I saw one in my back yard in Dundee Dr in Cheshire. I reported it to the police. This was no bob cat. It was a large prowling grayish cat.
