Cougar?

Pretty convincing evidence of a cougar in Newcomb. Seems someone caught it on a motion activated game camera. I'm no biologists but it looks like a big ass cat to me. Had o happen sooner or later. I'm not sure how I feel about it. Can I get a locals opinion?

Images to share?  Would love to see.

I've definitely seen cat tracks in winter with a big old tail draggin in the snow.

But never actually seen the big cat.

Re: Cougar?

Btw harvey, is there a way to get the newest post at the top of my comments instead of the oldest posts being the first comments? I find myself scrolling to the last comment and if it is a hot topic that tends to be pages away.
Thanks,
Scott

Re: Cougar?

Not sure that's convincing. Looks more like the head of a bobcat

If you are doing both of those things, that's the best I got, at this moment.

Pic, with associated text from the Post-Star:

Between all of the sightings we hear about and the Department of Environmental Conservation confirmation in recent years that mountain lions do pass through our area from the north or west, there is no doubt that the big cats do frequent the Adirondacks.

Whether there is a naturally occurring and/or breeding population of them here remains to be seen.

I was forwarded a picture today that the sender said was shot in recent weeks by a trail cam on the Gooley Club property. I've seen a lot of fraud and hoax pictures over the years, but I know the person who sent it to me and this one seems to be legit.

It appears to be a big cat, but doesn't look like a bobcat. Conclude what you may.

**EDIT**
Regardless of whether one believes the above photo is an actual a mountain lion, it is a fact that wild (as opposed to released or escaped pets) mountain lions at least pass through the Adirondacks:
