Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Might want to check those stats....

According to the Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife, there are no cougars in the state anymore.
They have admitted that there have in the past few years been some sightings of bears in the eastern end of the state, but they're still not considered to be reintroduced.
My research, however, has found ZERO evidence that the O.D.N.R. is willing to admit the presence of Face-Eating Monkeys in their midst.

Your timing is interesting. Was it
Zane, Ohio, this morning where the man opened the cages of all his captive predators, then shot himself? A bad deal. They tried to tranquilze some of the animals but ended up having to kill most. At last mention, all were captured or killed except a wolf and a monkey.
So there were grizzleys, bears, leopards and tigers in the streets in Ohio today.

Yes ma'am, that's why I included a link to the story about the story that you referenced to. (mentioning that only a cougar, a bear, and a monkey are yet loose, as of my press time today.)

Apparently the monkey got eaten by one of the higher predators (or so they are saying)...

I heard that.
And now I'm sad.

And about 100 miles north of Madison, WI, a guy got a perfect trailcam photo of a friggin' cougar near his house (the guy's house, not the cougar's house). A WI DNR spokesman says this is very exciting news and insists there are no female cats east of the Dakotas and that this feline of undetermined sex is merely passing through.

Are they distinguishing 'cougars who may have been in the area' from 'known cougars to have settled in and started breeding in the area'?

Of course, the Great Lakes State has the same problem with cougars.
Officially they aren't in-state, but people claim to have seen them.

I don't think the State DNR is stupid. My conclusion is that there may be paperwork trouble with the Feds if they can prove that cougars exist in the area.

And there's also the fact that 'cougar in the woods' reports can range from an overexcited city-slicker who saw a bob-cat to a local who keeps a trail-cam and can tell that he's looking at a cougar-sized feline.
