On 11/1/2012 at approximately 6:30 pm i spotted a mountain lion. I live in Litchfield, CT. I was traveling from Bissell Road onto White Woods Road. As I was nearing the little bridge which crosses the Bantam River, a mountain Lion came up from the left corner of the bridge, crossed the road and then went down the embankment on the right hand side of the road. This is an area with alot of dense woods and a lot of water. The land it was on is actually owned by a wildlife preserve, The White Memorial Foundation. Close by to this bridge is a popular are where canoers and kayackers launch their boats. Also close by you have Bantam Lake and a hiking trail called The Board Walk. The color of the cat was light tan. The black stripes on its mouth where very distinct. It was the size of an adult Bob Cat but had a long tail. Because of its size I assume it must have been young. I was very close to this cat. I had to stop my car in order to be sure I would not hit it. It was a beautiful animal and I felt very blessed at that moment that I was given the opportunity to witness such a rare occurrence. I am 100% sure of what I saw. There is no doubt in my mind that I live amongst mountain lions. If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
