More Evidence of Cougars in Michigan

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment has released a photo of a cougar snapped by a trail camera in the remote Upper Peninsula area of Wallace. The department says that “although the image is blurred, the photo is consistent with a cougar.” Cougars have supposedly been extinct in Michigan for 100 years, but in the last 2 years, 5 sets of tracks and 2 confirmed photos have provided evidence that the big cats do indeed call the state home. Find the full article, with the photo, at the Lansing State Journal.
