    I thought this was going to be about Demi Moore... :)

    In all seriousness, I read an article in the Columbus Dispatch about 8 or 9 years ago, I believe. Game warden in the eastern part of the state observed one for several minutes, and this was considered to be a reliable report. It was unknown if it was truly wild, or if it had escaped from somewhere.

    Actually there have been more than a few so-called "confirmed sightings" around Norris Lake.

    Hard to believe.

    As if bears weren't bad enough.

    I don't like not being the top of the food chain while walking in the dark with my bow.

    Back on the late 80's and early 90's I saw several cougars in Ohio between Ripley and Aberdeen, most where at the dog house, Boone's tavern, Town and Country or Rivera. All these places are closed now so I haven't heard of or seen any in a while

    Let me be the first. Green Acres bar in southern Campbell county is loaded with cougars every weekend.

    That site is not a reliable news source.
