    There are also black panthers in AR. We’ve had sightings in the Chimes area going back more than 2 decades.

    We have them in Arkansas, too! Here’s a link to a news channel on the subject. There was also a woman killed by a mountain lion in the Chimes area, where Searcy county and Van Buren County cut back and forth. You need to update your map. They’re in a lot more states than you think! Besides being in AR. they’re in CO, OK, MO, etc. http://katv.com/archive/game-and-fish-says-mountain-lions-are-in-arkansas-but-arent-breeding

    Carole, I know this is a year later than your request for proof, but here's a link to the Missouri Department of Conservation's map of confirmed cougar sightings in Missouri. It also lists information on DNA tests on hair that indicate the origin of many of the animals' family lines. http://mdc.mo.gov/discover-nature/wildlife-reporting/mountain-lion-reports/confirmed-mountain-lion-reports

    Lo and behold, as soon as I get off this website, I find a new article about cougars in Caldwell http://www.kboi2.com/news/local/Mountain-lion-caldwell-sightings-228721291.html

    I live in Idaho and there was a juvenile cub running around the subdivisions. Unfortunately, many people were excited at the chance to shoot it. Also, last summer there was one around the Greenbelt by the Boise River.

    Your map needs to be corrected on where they are. I have seen them in Missouri. Many hit by cars on the Highway.

      Send pics so we can prove it if we make the statement.

      I have heard of them being seen around here, too. Being elusive, their pictures are typically only on hunting cameras.

    The Florida Panther holds a special place in my heart. Thank you Big Cat Rescue for all you do for all the big cats.

    I LOVE Cougars! I think it should be illegal to hunt them and illegal for private individuals to own them. Places like Big Cat Rescue are a godsend for all Big and Lesser Cats.
