Cougar Sightings Abundant in Lincoln County

Can we send a couple to Augusta? The hunting should be very good in that region, owing to slow-moving, over-fed bureaucrats.

State Inland Fisheries and Wildlife officials say publicly that they have no conclusive proof that cougars live in Maine, that no one has produced a good enough quality picture to prove they are here.There are many people in Lincoln County who dispute IF&W’s patented response, because they have been lucky enough to see one.Marjorie West, of Ridge Road in Newcastle, saw a cougar three or four weeks ago cross Rte. 215 near the Joe and Carol Gifford farm. About a week before her sighting, the Giffords’ horses were startled by something, broke through the fence and ended up near Russell’s Farm in North Newcastle. “I saw a cat, and glanced again. It had a long tail, long and curled up. I just knew it was a cat,” West said.[url=http://www.mainelincolncountynews.com/index.cfm?ID=11693]Rest of story[/url]

Cougar sighting claimed in Maine

WINSLOW, Maine (AP) -- Maine state biologists are investigating a report of a mountain lion sighting in Winslow.

Lin Stout told the Kennebec Journal that she and her 9- and 5-year-old sons spotted the long tail of a cougar bobbing through ferns and brush from their backyard Monday afternoon. They live in a subdivision that's surrounded by woods.

The state game department's Wally Jakubas said there was another possible mountain-lion report last week in north Augusta.
