Around 7pm on 6/23, my wife spotted a cougar outside of our bedroom window. She knew immediately that this was not a bobcat. I ran over and we watched as it walked (about 6 feet below us) in between our neighbor’s and our property line. It was brown, long whiskers, long tail. We have seen all sorts of wildlife in our yard since moving here 2 years ago. 2 bobcats, several foxes, 1 coyote. This year the rabbit population in our yard is booming, maybe tat is brought him over. I ran outside and took some pics as he was sitting under a tree staring at the street. After about 4 pics, it noticed me and turned its head in my direction. It crouched, I stood still about 5o yards away. I shouted and, poof, it was gone. I have several pics… wish i could attach.
Last night around 7:30pm, I looked out of my window and saw a mountain lion on our property in Brookfield, CT. It was a tan color, approximately 100 lbs. and it had a long tail. We’ve seen bobcats before, but this was, without question, not a bobcat. My husband went outside to take a picture of it and to confirm that it was a mountain lion. He yelled really loudly and then it ran away.
