Car Strikes Moose On The Merritt
#1 Jun 10, 2007
If the moose was reported to be in the vicinity on Sunday, why should it take three days to track it down. Although I am very happy that the woman is doing fine, I am upset the young moose is not.

There are now a number of local residents from Fairfield to Newtown who have spotted a mountain lion. The idea that it may be one of many is probably not the case, but it very well may be an escaped pet who may have outgrown its home.
The authorities have time and again said that when they check out the sightings it ussually turns out to be a bob cat or a coyote. But recently some sightings were very clear and near and were definitely long tailed, tan hide, mountain lion. The most recent was this past week on Sturges Highwy between Westport and heading into Fairfield. It startled a small dog and was after a deer. It ran away when the dogs owner came out to see what the dog was so excited about.
Having a professional tracker could be very expensive but a large cat like this which may have been someone's pet is not afraid of humans and can actually pose more of a risk to humans then a wild cougar. I think its time to take these sightings a bit more seriously.
