    I hear stories of cougars up closer to Armstrong, ON, but I have yet to see evidence. One co-worker was apparently warned by a CO near there - watch for cougars.

    On another note, thanks for posting that link; now I know where to find TB Source online!

    I'll ask for the pic.

    The numbers may be real low because this area may be poor habitat.

    Some time ago the Ontario Cougar was listed as 'Extirpated', this means the numbers were too few to count. Presently the status has been bumped up to 'Endangered' implying an increase to the polpulation:

    Status

    Endangered

    “Endangered” means the species lives in the wild in Ontario but is facing imminent extinction or extirpation.

    I saw one 30 years ago, it was also seen by one other individual, the animal had been tracked by the Michigan DNR entering Ontario, but that was a long time ago and at that point the Cougar was listed as 'Extirpated'.

    Could the rumours about the MNR re-introducing the cougar be a result of capture and relocating the animals?

    I have no doubt there are Cougars close to Armstrong. I would think there are Manthers up there as well.

    Cougars are the outdoorsmans equivalent of "urban myth"..
    I don't believe they are re-introduced but they were all over Ontario at one point.

    There are moose around where I live, I have not seen any or seen the tracks but I know they are there. There are bears around where I live, I have not seen any or seen any tracks but I know they are there.

    To just say that a cougar sighting must be that someone has drank too much of the neighbours finest is a huge insult. I have not seen any but I know of a few people who have. One in the big bush of Eastern Ontario, one closer to Hwy 7 and one south of Ottawa. When there is an all beige cat with a long tail walking through the fully mature wheat that is not a barn cat and the long tail says it is not a lynx or a bobcat, what other options do you have?

    We didn't think it was that big of a deal because I have had all the proof I need thirty years ago.
