Mountain Lions Are Back in Vermont!

Jump to last reply

Until recently, it was thought that the last mountain lion (a very big cat -- aka a catamount) disappeared from our state decades ago. However, reports have started surfacing again in recent years, and we have now spoken with no fewer than SIX reliable people who have SEEN one (maybe the same one, for all we know, but I doubt it) around the Rutland area -- primarily in Mendon or Chittenden -- in the last year.

There is no mistaking this animal for anything else. We've all seen bobcats and lynx, and the mountain lion is MUCH bigger! Two saw it run across the road in the dawn hours, in front of their car (a very startling sight I'm sure!), and the others have seen it (or one of them) either loping along in the woods or, in one case, just sitting there, like a very big dog, but it was NOT a dog, as soon as they got to see its distinctive long tail.

Just mentioning this in case, along with our moose and deer, some of you see a VERY large cat, too!
