The Quest for the Eastern Cougar
Tuesday, March 26 at 6:30pm in Kingsley
The cougar or Puma concolor once roamed free and wild all across the Northeast. It was extirpated from this region about 1890; however, ever since there have been sightings and even some field evidence. Yet local wildlife officials continue to tell us that they do not exist. In fact, the U.S. fish and Wildlife Service officially declared the species extinct here in May of 2011. Only a month later, a 140 pound male cougar was struck and killed in Milford, Connecticut. If they are extinct then why do so many people see them and how do you explain the recent kill? Join us and learn more about the eastern cougar, and its history in the Northeast.
