    My nephew has found scat and track that he's sure are a mountain lion, here on the CT shoreline. And right near where he found that, I found a deer carcass, half eaten, that had been taken down in a major fight, I assume by a single animal (which is not typical for the coyotes).
    I can't substantiate the claim but we may well have one in our woods here.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      bag it in a paper bag or box, let it dry out and see if someone will do a mitochondrial DNA test for you.

        If I take it to the State DEP and it turns out to be a mountain lion, they will hunt it down and kill it.
        We have these "environmental police" that are housed in the local DEP, shiny shoes, guns, green version of the State Police uniforms, big gas guzzling SUVs. What they actually do? Who knows, I haven't seen them bust a Hummer driver yet, but I do see them at the coffee shop, reinforcing the stereotype.
