I heard of a few panthers on the hill. THey are here in spite of what DEC says. Bears...they're everywhere because of the dry weather and the many berries. They tend to gather around park hill, the cemetary and Moose RIver road near the canal.

I saw a medium sized bear walking down Wynn Road in Constableville about a year ago. He had his head down smelling the road, thank goodness, and didn't see me. He was intent on stealing the neighbor's grapes. I felt like a piece of meat walking down the road about 25 yards from him. Good thing he didn't see me. Very scary.

There was a sighting of a mountain lion a few years back, on route 28 between woodgate and Otter lake .. around Christmas time.. a lady saw the back end of it while driving home one night, and wrote an article to the adirondack express.. Dec won't claim they are in the area but look at where we live.. anything is possible.. a friend of mine also that lives in woodgate claims she saw a black panther in her back yard also, probably about 5-8 years ago, was dark, turned the backyard light on to walk out on porch and she looked out in yard, saw it and went back inside.. wouldn't surprise me if we do have them.. and if we do, they are very discreet and there isn't many of them, that is for sure. I've lived in the woodgate area my whole life, you see a lot of things that you don't see anywhere else..

There were two Mountain Lions spotted past the Adk HS off of 294 this summer and one just last week in the Alder Creek,Forestport area. Despite the laws I urge anyone that spots one to shoot it,if you can do so without getting caught. They are beautiful animals but also very dangerous predators.

shoot it with a camera maybe, that way you can prove you saw one, but don 't just reach for a gun and start shooting! There is enough of that going on already!

to be cautious I would keep children and small animals in at dusk -that is when these sightings occur and when the animals are so wild they would stalk anything.

There was a mountain lion spotted near Holland Patent a few months ago, not the first spotted by this person in the same area. They are around.

Amazing.
