Re(1): Michigan Confirmations

I have to have hats off to the Michigan DNR. They embarked on quite the study of cougars after getting fired on by NPR and others. Per my previous post, they collected a NUMBER of scat samples all over Michigan, and even a cougar tooth from an indian burial mound, to compare past DNA of cougars in Michigan. The report is long, but these were the conclusions:
"Our data show that there are no genetic differences in the sequence of a historical cougar sample from Michigan or from a contemporary Michigan cougar compared to cougars currently resident elsewhere in North America". IE, same as South Dakota, same as Quebec. Clearly they are on board with the species there and applying excellent science. I apologize for quoting the past issues with them. They actually had to conduct quite the program to find them however, with the assistance of the Michigan Wildlife Conservancy.
