Are Wild Mountain Lions Back In Connecticut?
Most people want to believe there's a breeding population of mountain lions spreading through parts of Connecticut and into New York's Hudson Valley.
People root for this to be the case. We want to believe that where we live is not completely tame - that there's a whiff of wildness and mystery to boring old Connecticut. And what could be wilder and more mysterious than mountain lions? If you're a Connecticut mountain lion believer, you're not alone. I've been poking around, off and on, for more than a decade, and it's pretty easy to find people who think they've seen a cougar in Winsted or Litchfield. In the past two weeks, mountain lion fever reached a new high. People saw a mountain lion in Greenwich. Then a motorist hit and killed one in Milford. Escaped pets? A native population? a Hybrid of the two? Leave your comments below, e-mail email@example.com or Tweet us @wnprcolin.
