When I brought up that fact to a local biologist at the Berkshire museum, she told me that there have been quite a few sitings of that animal….definitely not a bobcat. It seems to have somehow lost its tail. She also told me that some cubs were sited at a nearby bar/restaurant in Lanesborough MA…My siting occured in 2007, but my neighbor had seen it a couple of times before then…Ken Mello (retired Science teacher)”

This afternoon around 3:30 I saw a cougar passing from the area of the koi pond across my yard border (about 150 feet) into the woods. My house is near a state park and area is heavily wooded. I checked photos on the internet and this is definitely a cougar (size, color, etc.). He appeared to be at least 40 pounds or triple the size of a housecat. What a long tail!
As a nature lover I am thrilled but as the owner of a small dog (17 pounds), I am a bit scared. Does anyone know if the cougar would attack my dog?”
This predator can run 35 mph and leap over 30 feet. Start respecting the king of the mountain.
