I haven't heard anything more about that cougar but even if that wasn't the picture of it we have seen it on our land and one of the guys in the lease owns a farm nearby and he's see two on his land.
There was lot's of sightings and actual prints found in Walworth county and also Racine county in the southeastern corner of the state.
Black bears are also moving down into the central part of the state.
This is all in the Wisconsin DNR website.
So, you've personally seen a cougar on land you own? Cool. I think that would be an awesome experience.
Here's the latest chart of confirmed cougar sightings in the state....as per the end of August. The 4 stars in the SW part of the state is of the cougar I posted about. Don't see any in Racine or Walworth county...maybe they just haven't gotten around to puttin' them on. Latest Cougar Sightings Map
I have lived here in the SW corner of the state for 58 years and there have been bears here my whole life. But like most parts of the state where they have always been, there are more of them.
Good luck deer hunting this season, maybe you'll get lucky and see that cougar again.
