NEWSLINK: Despite rumors, cougars officially extinct in eastern U.S.

After nearly a decade of debate - and decades of rumors - the eastern cougar has officially been declared extinct and will be removed from the list of endangered species later this month.
In a press release from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the federal agency said that eastern cougars have likely been extinct for decades, and as such there is no need to protect them under the Endangered Species Act.
