Tolland Mt. Lion

My Wife and I seen a dead one at the on ramp on Rt.84 heading towards Hartford. It was big at least 100 lbs. and had the long tail. We turned aroung and went back to see it and someone had picked it up. There was still some fur and guts there the last time I went by,the animal hadn't taken them away yet. I called the D.E.P. I didn't seem like they thought it was a big deal?

  1. I saw a Cougar running toward the Ct. river wooded area in Suffield on Thursday, November 10th. and reported it to the Suffield Police Dept. Just checked out the photos on the web and confirmed that it was definitely a Cougar!

    • Joyce, It’s exciting to see one isn’t it . I wish the one my Wife and I saw was alive. I did go back and retrieve the remains. They are being tested for D.N.A.. I’ll keep everyone posted when the results come back. I have to follow up on that. Al

  2. What happened regarding this evidence you submitted??? Did the DEP get back to you?

  3. They say it was a racoon skin??

  4. There was one walking along the road of the street next to mine. It was beautiful. There’s a family of foxes in my backyard, though. 🙂 We’ve also had bear. XD
