I heard today that a Cougar was spotted around Earlham College today 7/24/12 not to far from my house. Heard of other sightings also around the area. This was the 1st i heard of sightings around here. The DNR should start letting ppl know that these types of animals are around this area now. My daughter plays outside all the time and we dont live too far from wooded areas. Scary to think this could be in my back yard sometime,

I have found a track near Huntertown, In and also near North Webster. Both tracks very large and were cat prints. I am an environmentalist and spend lots of time out in the woods. Never seen one personally. Have heard from friends multiple reports of one being around Hoagland area this past fall in 2013.

We saw several panthers in southern Indiana...one was black too. I had them on video and even then the DNR didn't want to hear it. Lol! Now they've 'recognized' them after catching one on their own trail cam/s. They've been here for a long time. Like many other things, we just rarely see them. There are white deer in Indiana as well.
