I live in newtown, ct. now for 7 yrs, by the farms, we have heard things being killed in the forest many times. My neighbor watching the coyotes and bobcats kill rabbits in his back yard. we now know we have coyotes, 2 yrs ago a black bear, also winter of 2009 going into 2010 we saw what looked like a puma (black) about 4 to 5 ft long running across the farm field and jumped a gate, we got pics of the distance and paw prints. Also last year someone's dog was killed by a mountain lion in Newtown. All the neighbors have seen bobcats and lynx, including my son, husband and my family, Today that changed I finally saw a bobcat or lynx today @ 1:00 in the afternoon. It rained off and on, so it kinda seemed like it was going into dust but it wasnt i looked out the window there he was just walking by my property, i yelled to my husband and ran outside. he stared us down for a long time before he turned to run, but only ran 20 ft and stopped, he didnt seem afraid really. eventually he ran towards the brook. BUT YET DEP in Newtown says we don't have these things running around, even an article in danbury news times a couple wks ago saying this, they SAID people are seeing house cats, THIS CAT IS AS BIG AS MY DOG, and he is a german shephard doverman mix 98 lbs. The dog pound admits it but DEP wont. Until someone gets killed or something like that. I will work on getting a picture and i will post it on YOUTUBE AND FACEBOOK FOR EVERYONE TO SEE, then I can say they are full of chit !

I saw a lynx in my backyard this morning. It chased a deer out of the woods. It had pointy ears a stuby tail and it was grayish brown. It was slightly bigger than our medium sized dog. This is in Southington, Ct.

1/6/12 Just saw a lynx in Pomfret, Connecticut. Will upload my pics when I get them off my cellphone. I pray they turn out clearly. I saw the big cat standing in the road and thought oh that must be a bobcat but when I got closer, it was definitely a lynx. Had the black tips, black tip on tail. I had no idea we had lynx here!

As I feared terrible pic quality and impossible to clearly make out the lynx. Oh well. I used to be skeptical of posts claiming to see wildcats around aside from bobcats. But now I will believe them! It was most definitely a lynx. So cool.

back in the early 90s i saw a big black cat on our camp rd on dundee pond in windham, it was in may, was riding bikes with several other kids and was far ahead of them, stopped at the top of a small hill 2 wait for them and a he bottom of the hill was a larg jet black shinny cougar, he was laying in the moist dirt from the spring that ran under the rd, the tip of his long thick tail was flicking up and down, he was looking in2 the woods on my right, his ears were flicking from all the black flies around its head, i watched this beautiful cat for over 40 sec, when the other kids were coming up behind me, it looked up at me then into the woods then stood up and walked in2 them, i want 2 know if anyone has seen or saw a big black cat in or around windham Maine?

I was walking down Sharpe Hill Vineyard in pomfret ct (back side along woods) to the main building. My girlfriend and I heard a lot of rustling and saw a small tree branch shaking. I asked her to stop because I thought it might be a deer. All of a sudden a dark brown large cat (size of a lab with longer body and long tail) came into view. It had dark circles in its coat and basically looked like a house cat but four times the size). It moved quickly and looked back at us just once before disappearing. It did not have the head shape to be a cougar and had a long tail. No bobcat or Lynx. The best I can tell is that it was a Maine Coon Cat but it was very large. Really quite amazing.
