If They Can't Find a Cougar in Milwaukee...

If they can't find a cougar in Milwaukee, where there are 600,000 potential witnesses, why does anyone find it strange we can't produce bigfoot sightings on demand in the 'wilderness'?

Last Monday was the first reported sighting of what is either a male cougar or female lion roaming the streets of Milwaukee. Officials from the DNR haven't found scat, hair or tracks of the animal when there's obviously specific locations to look for such evidence.

A video and police sightings confirm this isn't a hoax. Around 7pm Saturday night, the police quarantined an area where they thought the 'lion' was located. Sunday the search came up empty although another police officer sighted the animal before it went into thick underbrush, police K9 dogs were brought in and police, DNR and domestic animal control personnel are involved.

Under the conditions, you'd think the 'lion' would have been bagged by now, but it hasn't. That begs the question, how much more difficult is it to find bigfoot in the wilds without hundreds of thousands of potential witnesses every day, specially trained trackers and a defined 4 block area (which would equal a square mile)?

Saw this in my Facebook feed tonight and makes me wonder if this might be the same cougar seen in the Milwaukee area, or yet another one roaming around Wisconsin.

I think it's the same one. It was sighted in Grafton in between so it has gone north. I just can't see too many separate animals running around in southeastern Wisconsin when they're so rare here to begin with. I actually had hoped it would have stuck around Milwaukee and cleaned up the rat population or something useful like that. :lol:
