POLL: A mountain lion in northwestern Ontario?

      8 Comments on POLL: A mountain lion in northwestern Ontario?

The latest in the ongoing search to confirm the existence of the eastern mountain lion in Northwestern Ontario comes from Ear Falls area resident David Beaudry who captured this image on a trail cam, Aug. 31. The infra-red photograph was triggered with a motion sensor near Beaudry’s shop and shows an animal with a distinctly cat-like tail.

However, local MNR officials were unable to confirm with any level of certainty whether the image is in fact that of a cougar. What do you think?  Weigh in on the matter in the poll below.                                Photo courtesy David Beaudry
