Having been presumed extinct for a while the Eastern Cougar has been officially declared extinct by the US Fish and Wildlife Service.


The US agency asked for input about the eastern cougar, and determined from the 573 responses it received that any sightings in the area were actually of other types of cougars. Of the 21 states in the historical range of the cats, "no states expressed a belief in the existence of an eastern cougar population," it said. The service's lead scientist for the eastern cougar, Mark McCollough, said the animal has likely been extinct since the 1930s. source
