Cougars (Pumas) in the Timmins area?

Post #1 by pameladallaire » Wed Aug 22, 2007 9:46 am

I have personally seen cougars in the Timmins area about 10 years ago. Although I have spoken to others who have also seen them, there is no physical evidence (photos, tracks, hair, scat) to prove they exist in this area.



[url=http://ontariopuma.ca/index.html][b]The Ontario Puma Foundation [/b][/url]is trying to get acurate counts of pumas all throughout Ontario. They are a non-profit, volunteer organization working in cooperation with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (OMNR), Environment Canada (EC), Canadian Wildlife Service (CWS) and the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC).



If you SEE or take a photo of a cougar in Timmins, or anywhere in Ontario, please contact[b] The Ontario Puma Foundation[/b] and help with the count.



If you just have an interest in cougars, you can become a member of the OPF.

I'll post a photo of a lynx I took in August of this year. Not a great pic but see if you can spot it. Click on it to zoom in. This is along Highway 101 near Wawa.
