Area Youth Attacked by Mountain Lion

Area Youth Attacked by Mountain Lion

There are 4 comments on the The Wabaunsee County Signal-Enterprise/STPNS story from Sep 9, 2007, titled Area Youth Attacked by Mountain Lion. In it, The Wabaunsee County Signal-Enterprise/STPNS reports that:

“There's no doubt it was a cat.”

    Despite residents of northeast Kansas reporting numerous sightings of mountain lions, Kansas Wildlife and Parks (KWP) Officials refuse to substantiate that mountain lions actually  exist in Kansas.  

  As KWP Officer Rick Campbell put it, "They're going to need a car-cass or photo before they can say, without a doubt, they exist."

  Seventeen year-old Wabaunsee High School senior Wayne Flerlage is sure they do.   He came face to face with one Saturday morning, and it  could have ended his life. Read more

I can believe this, My grandson & I were in LaCygne Ks. when I saw a Black Cougar Kit. It was about 5' long with tail. I mentioned it to my neighbors and both of them had seen cougars their. One of them had taken some video of 2 of them playing at the head of my ponds. The other neighbor and her daughter saw a mom and kit the previous fall. So I do believe they are here and well.

I live up near macon missouri and i have had 3 mountain lion sightings. so there isnt a doubt in my mind that a cougar could be in Kansas
