    I read that article and know exactly where that is. I hunt that area,so,I'll be keeping my eyes peeled. I don't understand why OMNRF is so reluctant to confirm the identity of the cat. Any idiot can see what it is. Rocket science it ain't.

    I'm not sure the reluctance either. I mean they all can't be escapees from zoo's and pets. The area in question is actually quite built up with lots of houses around. I hunt all around there as well, would love to watch one from a stand or have it come in on a coyote set up. A friend and I saw one cross hwy 11 near Jelico one year moose hunting, I said to him that that was a cougar, he was like, I'm not sure what it was. I said to him, WTF, what other cat like animal in Ontario has a 3-4 foot long tail. He then agreed and said that it definitely had a long tail.
    You're only as good as your first shot of the day. Know your limitations and make it count.

    So,what do we do with these things if we run across one? I'm not sure if they're protected. They like to attack either from overhead or ambush and they will attack,without doubt. No maybe about it.

    From the article :But then I saw it climb a tree," she said.
    The tail is too long for a dog , and dogs don't climb trees.
    The animal looks rather skinny , could be an old one or very young ?

    I have seen many bluetick hounds climb tree's. I think maybe her imagination got the best of her. LOL
