NEWSLINK: Tennessee has first cougar sighting in 100yrs

In late November, a trail camera caught sight of a cougar in Humphreys County, Tennessee, 70 miles west of Nashville. There have been other big-cat sightings in West and Middle Tennessee this year that the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has verified, as well. TWRA spokesman Don King says that a cougar “[had] not been confirmed by state authorities in Tennessee in perhaps 100 years” until these recent reports. Speculation about Tennessee mountain lions has been a source of myth and lore in the region for about as long.
