This morning on the way to school Snap and I saw a cougar. At least, we think we did.
We came up over a rise and an animal dashed across the road in front of us on four legs. It stood about 3 feet or so at the shoulder and had pointed ears and a long tail. At first I thought it was a deer - but it wasn't. Then I thought it was a coyote, but it was too big and ran like a cat.
There have been cougar prints sited in this area, but nobody has actually seen the cougar yet, so we feel very fortunate.
