Cougar Sighting in Georgia


Here in Kentucky and even many other southern states, we get told that there is no cougars in this area. But yet, we keep seeing them and sometimes even black panthers. But according to wildlife officials we do not have any cougars in the area and we are misidentifying other animals. It reminds me of a few years ago, when these same wildlife officials told us we didn't have any black bears in this area but of course we have a growing number of them.

Well, I got the following report of a cougar sighting in the state of Georgia and wanted to share it.

- Start Report -

Name: Ken ******

Email Address: On file

State: Georgia

County:

Date of Sighting: October 99

Time of Day: 7 PM

Nearest Town: Wrightsville

Length of Sighting: 20 seconds

How many Witnesses: 1

Any Photos/Videos: no

Describe sighting in detail:
Sitting in a tree stand deer hunting a pine grove, when at dusk a cougar walks right under my stand. It was on the trail I have to take back to the truck.  I live in the west and know a cougar when I see one.  Not a black panther but a tan cougar. 


- End Report -

I wonder why wildlife officials tell us that there is no cougars in an area, when in fact there is. Is it because they don't really know? or is it because they just don't want the general public to know they are there? To me, if the officials know they are there and are lying to people, it would be more dangerous to hikers and campers.  I think it would be better to let people know the possibly dangerous cat was in the area, so the hikers and campers could take precautions in case they ran into one. If an accident happened and the wildlife officials had lied about cougars being in an area, would that make the libel in some way?

Thanks to Ken for sending in his report.

Be safe everyone.



Thanks

  1. Tom I agree with you I have seen one with my family in the car in our area and my wife had been telling me she had saw it a few times before. It was about .5 a mile from our home where a family raise ducks, chickens and turkeys. They've since moved and the places dozed down and no more sightings of the cat here.

    I have seen two more photos of one caught just south of us one around Shelby in Pike county another closer to you around Harlin if I remember correctly. So yes they are around here and most likely the officials are never going to be responsible for anything they have been hiding behind their lies so long they believe their untouchable if they claim not to know anything and most likely the cats will be if the public don't know their there as they are rarely seen.
