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.
