Cougar sighting confirmed
TRAVERSE CITY - A cougar confirmation in the Upper Peninsula won't sway the Department of Natural Resources' stance on the possibility of a "breeding population" of cougars in the state.
The agency still wants more evidence.
The DNR confirmed this week that a hair sample turned in by a motorist who hit "a large cat" in Menominee County came from a cougar.
The cougar sighting in the Upper Peninsula was not a surprise, said Raymond Rustem, supervisor of the DNR's natural heritage unit.
"We have said all along we expect there are cougars out there based on reports coming in," he said.
He said an isolated cougar sighting doesn't confirm Michigan has a breeding population. The cougar could have been released from captivity or a transient that strayed into Michigan from Minnesota or Canada.

How'd you go from a wider range for cougar in north america to yeti and dragons?
That whale song was recorded much much longer than a month ago too no? Its been known for some years no?
