Re(9): Big cat tracks on Mt Greylock

Aaron, Im not sure if you are aware, but cougar evidence and credible sightings are not new to Mass and CT. We found them back to the 1920's. Tracks have been documented in many places in Western MA at the least, and in CT. They had 2 confirmations in Rhode Island that wildlife officials initially labeled "bobcat", that were later reversed when people actually went to the sites and examined EVERYTHING there. They are now considered confirmations. Witnesses were insistant, and real investigation got done after the incidents were blown off as "bobcats". One had a deer carcass with a considerable ammount of evidence that was irrefutable.
As to the "Cat that walked from South Dakota", (hit on the road in CT) we have the DNA report, obtained with considerable resistance. It does NOT state that the specific cat DNA was traced, it says the DNA was "nearest matched" to the South Dakota cats on file. Since cougars had all of the Northern US as their range a couple hundred years ago, this is no surprise. Cats in Canada come up with the same match. That story of the "cat walking from South Dakota" is scientifically very dubious at the least.
