SIGHTINGS: Two more cougar sightings on North Shore
Two more North Shore residents have reported seeing mountain lions in the last week or so, in Highland Park and Northfield.
Still no confirmations, however.
“What we need are pictures,” Northfield Police spokeswoman Loren Boyes said Tuesday.
In an era when so many people tote around telephone cameras wherever they go, not one of the seven people who have seen something large and cattish has photographed what they reported seeing.
Confirmation through tracks remains a dead end, too. Friday evening, a resident of the 1100 block of Highland Park’s Lincoln Avenue reported seeing a large, tan, catlike animal in her backyard, but police could find no tracks or other evidence that it was there.
