I saw the "big cat" on Saturday morning, June 9th at 9:25 a.m. while taking my normal walk down Staley Road to West River. It was just past Invitrogen toward West River Road and about 25 feet in front of me it came running out of a field and crossed the street into another fielded area. I saw it perfectly. There was a car pulling into Invitrogen and the person stopped as they saw it too. It definately was a large, tall "cat" with a long tail that was up in the air as it ran colored light tan. My whole neighborhood got a laugh out of the story as they didn't believe me, but now that other people are reporting it, it's no so funny. I've also gone back to walking with a friend as I know what I saw.

Your name says it all Chicken Liver..Lets see your from the "United States" How brave of you to have your home town listed. The most wild thing you have probably seen is your spouse after you came home too late.

It is a fact that a few years ago the DEC released 11 mountain lions in the Western New York area. There has been one in the Holland/Colden area for at least 3 or 4 years. There is photos and casts of paw prints around. Also there was one sited in the East Otto area. So it is very possible there is one on Grand Island.

I have experience of 17 years working with tacking/trailing dogs,sort of SAR (Search and Rescue), I have a dog at my disposal that could track this lion and verify where it lives and could be of help to assure the safety of residents involved.I have a Leashed tracking dog license issued by DEC. Have the officer involved call me. Ed Avis Tracking dog Master Handler.............

I have a Leashed Tracking /Trailing and Search dog that could find this cat if they want it found. It would appear they don't want it found.

No need for tracking dogs. Just check for the E-Z Pass on the cat's forehead.

Call the Grand Island Town Hall, I'm sure our Animal Control officer, would appreciate your talented services. The Topix wont allow me to post the phone number but it ends in 9600

It was probably someone's pet that they couldn't handle anymore so decided to let it loose!! I live right in that area where the mountain lion is suppose to be and in the past month, the coyotes accross the street have been going nuts, like they do in the fall when they find deer carcus's shot by hunters, so maybe there is the DEC's reason why they aren't finding any dead animals. The coyotes here are crazy and everywhere!

There ARE absolutly mountain lions in wny. We believe they were stocked here to get rid of the abundance of coyotes.So if you see them, you are not losing your mind!

That is Van Dusen's pet. They use it for hockey practice. Their son takes slap shots at it. It got fed up and ran away because the abuse was too hard to handle.

In WNY you never know what you will see. About a week ago I was stunned to see a Tortoise in the Erie Canal.

The DEC is full of it. There was one is Strykersville, NY ( Wyoming Co )last year. The man who owned the property called the DEC and they denied it. He said ok, I will call the media. The DEC was there within the hour. Now you tell me the DEC is not involved in this.
