doesn't surprise us at all...cougars have been reported & documented across Illinois for over 200 years. Considered a flatlands state, mountain lions freely roam across the open Illinois fields as much as over hills, valleys and thru woodlands which emcompass much of the Land of Lincoln. One must remember, cougars follow rivers & streams, where prey find their food sources, which becomes a feline deli. For more data on eastern & midwest cougars visit www.easternpumaresearch.com which was recently featured on the Monster Quest Series of the History Channel.

I just wanted to say that today I was driven back to Abbott Laboratories (I work there) and I spotted a cougar on the side of the road near the corner of Rt 41 and Rt 137. It was just sitting there like if it was going to run across the street. I'm not aloud to call the police while at work and when I told my supervisor they just laughed at me and told me it was probably a coyote or a deer. I know what I saw and it was a cougar. I swear!!!! I looked at it for about 10 seconds and I'm 100% it was a cougar.

I saw a cougar yesterday while I was babysitting in Gurnee. It was walking across our yard, East, toward the middle school. I called police to report the cougar and they said there had been two other reports in the surrounding neighborhoods. The neighborhood is across the street from Woodland Middle School. They said to not let any pets outside and obviously no small children either. Just an FYI!!!
