The Michigan DNR says (and I'm paraphrasing here), "Well, OK - we have cougars in Michigan, but they're not breeding here." According to the Detroit Free Press, the DNR has DNA analysis that links the cougars found in Michigan with South Dakota, Nebraska and Wyoming. The theory is the confirmed sightings have been of cougars who have wandered away from their home range into Michigan. They've been, as the song goes: "Looking for love, in all the wrong places".

I know they have SCIENCE backing them up - but I'm not buying it.

Michigan - beautiful, secluded places, a brewery on every corner and all that Motown music - and you say there's no breeding going on? Not buying it, Michigan DNR.

Not buying it.

Here's the story.
