I saw a mountain lion in Lee Massachusetts on Tuesday Sept 4th,2007. It ran in front of my car on route 7 close to Laurel Lake nursing home.
Two or three other vehicles also stopped to watch this Mountain lion cross and run into the woods.

Are you sure it wasn't a bobcat as opposed to a mountain lion?

I am pretty sure it's a Bobcat. It's been in the area since March of this year.

Google it - Westford MA Bobcat.

Mountain Lions are not known in this area. Bobcats are.

I live in Carlisle MA... about two weeks ago I saw the MOUNTAIN LION in my friend's backyard.It was DEFINATElY a mountain lion and not a bob cat I don't care if they are not supposed to be found in the area... There were two other witnesses, it was about five feet away from us on the other side of the fence, and ..... I know the difference between a mountain lion and a bobcat, especially from such a close range. I am 100% sure.

i saw a cougar in lenox mass a few weeks ago, and last night in the same place around 11 30pm i saw some deer and then 2 baby cougars went bouncing across the driveway acrosse the road and into some thick cover. i looked around for the mother, but didn't see her. I'm sure she was hunting the deer before i screwed everything up for her.

I saw a Mountain Lion in Dunstable MA today. He was drinking at the (Nashua) river, saw me and bounded up the riverbank. It was definitely a mountain lion. I saw it clearly.

I was driving in Westford on Main St,just after the split to Depot Rd on Friday (9/7) at 4:00 pm and it ran across the road in front of me. It crossed the road heading towards the field at the back of the Abbot School. I'm pretty sure it was a lion after looking at images when I got home.
