[Entirely Off Topic] Extinct? Cougar sightings on the rise in eastern United States
Generally speaking, I’m with the “non-extinct” group for various reasons, just as I believe the reported sightings of “black panthers” [black versions of big cats] in South Carolina. From the Daily Mail, where there is more:
Endangered species specialist Mark McCollough, who works with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Maine, was the lead scientist in the agency’s study declaring the cougar extinct.
He told msnbc.com that there is no scientific evidence that Eastern cougars have survived 150 years after being driven from the region.
He added that the last known real eastern cougar was shot dead in 1938 in Maine.
