    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    I think a few cougars do roam through Southern Ontario but its for the most part unseen. I think most of the sightings people claim are either false or misidentified animal.

    Cougars can travel thousands of miles just looking for a mate. We have enough forested area and enough deer for a cougar to take his time working his way south through the province. We had one outside our public school back in the 90's and I remember my friends dad showing us pictures of the tracks behind his house that backed onto the school.

    Seeing as the MNR has acknowledged in the past that there are escapees then it is very possible they have started breeding. Which is why I find it easy to believe they exist.

    One day earlier this winter I had the land owner of one of the properties I coyote hunt stop me..... warning me that a cougar was in the area. She said they had the MNR on her property a few days before confirming the tracks. She told me to be careful and watch out in-case it was still around.... She never say it herself but her neighbors did which prompted the call to the MNR....I kind of just dismissed it but she is a pretty honest and respectful lady so you never know...

    The farmer and neighbours next to the property I sold last year kept telling me to be careful as a black panther had been seen on a couple of different occasions on my property. I always laughed it off as local lore but now sometimes wonder what exactly was seen...
    Personally, all I ever saw was a fisher and a bear but who knows...??

    Understood and it was all in good fun. Just making the point that this is one of those never-ending debates that eventually fizzles out into "yeah, they're probably here but we might never know if they're wild or escapees".

    To contribute to the thread, I think there are a few around but until I see pictures of juvenile cougars I won't be able to fully believe in a wild, breeding population. I'm pretty sure I saw one about ten years ago but it's still not enough to convince me.

    We have the habitat to sustain a population in Ontario and have yet to hear a remotely good reason based on actual fact why they cannot exist in Ont.
