Tougias, Robert The Quest For The Eastern Cougar Nature- Animals,
Nature- Animals,
Science
The cougar or Puma concolor once roamed free and wild all across the Northeast. It was extirpated from this region about 1890; however, ever since there have been sightings and even some field evidence. Yet local wildlife officials continue to tell us that they do not exist. In fact, the U.S. fish and Wildlife Service officially declared the species extinct here this spring. Only a month later, a 140 pound male cougar was struck and killed in Milford, Connecticut. If they are extinct then why do so many people see them and how do you explain the recent kill? Robert Tougias will answer this question and discuss the future of the large carnivore here in New England. The program will last forty five minutes and will be followed by questions. "I will be discussing the history and extirpation of the eastern cougar with slides of historical interest,the debate over whether or not cougars live here and the question of reintroducing cougars back into our woodlands..."
