While driving on Rte 44 in Avon yesterday Sept 21st at around noon I saw an injured mountain Lion lying on it’s side on the side of the road with several people surrounding it. Was this reported? I couldn’t believe my eyes. Kathy
I was driving down huckleberry road in Avon when a mountain lion ran right across the road. This happened in early April and I failed to report it then because I didn’t know it was a oddity.
On country club road in avon, ct at around 7 pm last night I saw a young mountain lion slowly crossing the street. Jumped over a pile of brush gracefully, long thick tail, big paws. About the size of a small collie.
I was almost certain I saw a mountain lion cross Nod Road in the spring. I went on line to look at pictures of different animals and felt sure it was a mountain lion. Last night my daughter arrived home very concerned. She saw 2 animals cross over Hazen Drive in Avon into Hazen Park. She described the animals and we looked at pictures on line. Sure enough she was certain they were mountain lions.
On Wednesday, March 10, 2010 I left Huckleberry Hill Road and turned onto Chevaz at about 7:10 a.m. About 2/3rds of the way down something leaped from a residential lawn into the road and then took a second leap which put the hugh animal on the other side. At first I thought it was a deer, but then realized it was lower to the ground and had a pretty long tail. When I pulled up along side of where it landed, it was walking away from the road into the wood line. It was a large cat, having a tail that appeared to be almost as long as its body, sweeping downward, almost touching the ground with a slight upward twist at the end. I believed I had seen a mountain lion. We have bobcats in our area, but this definitely was not a bobcat. I called the DEP who questioned me at lengths in particular about the tail, and finally said he really thought I had seen a large cat, but couldn’t confirm that it was a mountain lion.
