The fifth confirmed cougar sighting in Michigan this year was announced yesterday by the Michigan DNR. According to WXYZ-TV in Detroit, the sighting was confirmed by the "DNR Cougar Team". (My two cents? If you're headed down to Florida for the winter and have a ladies pickle-ball team, "Michigan DNR Cougar Team" would be a great name)

This latest cougar was caught on two different cameras in the Upper Peninsula, 14 miles apart. One was in northern Delta County and the other was in southern Marquette County. So, sounds like this cougar was about half way between Escanaba and Marquette. In about three weeks there should be a lot of deer hunters up in that area. Keep an eye out if you're one of them.

According to the DNR Cougar Team, not only is this the fifth cougar sighting of the year, but it's the 43rd since 2008. Good Lord, they're practically behind every tree now.

Here's the story. And good luck ladies, on your pickle-ball season.
