2 years ago I end up face to face with Mountain Lion. I was working on my truck with garage door open. That thing came next to the doors and stared at me for a minute then walk away slowly. I am pretty sure he was considering attacking me but did choose not to. I was glad I had plenty of tools around me so My wife would have nice coat that winter.
5 months ago we had two of them come and climb the tree next to my house after dark. We did not known what is happening until one decided to climb down scared by flashlight.
I think Connecticut DEP should do something before there is horrible accident.
BTW when I first told this story my friends told me I am crazy and it was bobcats, this week I visited Cabals store and saw how the mountain lion looks like and now I am 100% sure what I saw was mountain lion.
