    So is it a wild one that migrated, or a released one?

    Or the same one that was seen earlier this year in west Tennessee?

    WAVERLY, Tenn. - The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has issued a warning for a cougar that was spotted in Tennessee.

    TWRA officials said they have verified a report of one being spotted in Humphreys County caught on a trail camera last week.

    They said they were working to verify three more sightings, and believe the animals were beginning to expand into the Middle Tennessee area.

    “If you should come across one, give it ground. Let it go its way and you go your way, okay. They are pretty big animals. They don’t seem to be aggressive most of the time to human beings, but they are big and they could hurt you if you got into the situation,” said Doug Markham with the TWRA.

    Markham said they have received calls of cougars from all over Tennessee since the late 80's, but were never able to verify the sightings until now.

    I read on that Tn site that you might get smoked in court if you kill one because Tn was in the historical range of the endangered Florida panther?.

    What?? No snide remarks yet about Bigfoot or aliens? This may be a first when it comes to Mountain Lion threads.

    Good looking cat but not a monster by any means I probably avg seeing a Florida Panther around every three years I would say whether while driving or in the woods hunting/ scouting. We actually have one possibly two (conflicting info) that I have yet to see but have been reported sightings multiple times in the State park a few miles from the house. I have been followed back to my truck by one during bow season back in 2006. Caught a few glimpses of it.

    back in the woods you see
    Yes, and no way they could be in Ky! My dads brother has lived in Colorado since the early 70's, is an outdoorsman and said he has only seen one in his life. They have several in Colorado....

    That's "monster" enough for me...and much bigger than the cats wandering around my neighborhood.

    I used to frequent Colorado on business trips. Every once in a while, you'd get on their news that some person got nabbed by one jogging around a high school track.

    I hope they stay down there. Don't want to see nothing like that.
