Cougars make a comeback in US Midwest

5 posts in this topic

The American mountain lion or cougar is now re-populating parts of the US, scientists say.

Their numbers had plummeted in the last 100 years because of hunting and a lack of prey.

Writing in the Journal of Wildlife Management, researchers say the cougar is now spreading far outside their traditional western habitats.

But they say the return of the big cats raises important questions about how humans can live with these predators.

Cougars have been making a comeback in the mid-west and eastern portions of the U.S. for years. Game officials and scientists just refused to admit it for whatever reason. Piles of evidence exists locally in many states, but the powers that be just shook their heads and said nope, not happening.
