There's a cougar about 50yds from my house. When I go to get my mail, I just can't figure out if she's giving me a "come hither" or the "stink eye".

Hey thanks and do u happen to know what nosie they make because me and my cousin think we heard one out side the basement window and it kind of sounded like a cat but louder and deeper and it might of been her car but he's well behaved and has never done anything like that before. And could they be in Hersey Michigan?

You can't tell the difference between a wild animal and a car?

cougars, shmougars; as bad as people want to believe in a wild population of these cats in MI it just ain't so;
no more than there is a wild population of Sasquatch.

naturally occurring wild populations of lions east of the Rockies is highly improbable if not down right impossible.

the animals are highly secretive and stealthy yet would be easily detected anywhere across the open plains, especially across grazing country. livestock kills by them outside of their recognized range would be national news and any appreciable migration movements east would have been identified by scientist and recorded.

i concur with the DNR that the alleged lions that may be here got here through human intervention not by nature.

regardless, lion attacks from any source can be deadly.

Unless its the Detroit Lions in which case they're pretty tame. Appears the same is true of the Detroit Tigers!
