Cougar Spotted Near Iron Mountain, Michigan?

On her morning walk near the Millie Hill Estates in Iron Mountain, Michigan she saw this..


This morning I got quite a few messages asking me if I heard about the COUGAR being spotted and seen on Millie Hill early Monday morning. Apparently this person took the picture (above) I posted.. 

I called "anonymous" this morning and asked if she was the person posting about the cougar on Millie Hill.. She said yes she was but she said that photo was just one she got from google because it shows exactly what she saw.. I believe her, read her story below as told to me by phone..

 She told me she walks often alone and has never seen anything like it before. She said she say a SNAKE just a minute before, so her eyes were glued to the ground looking for more and never saw the cougar until she got really close.. She said she froze with fear, not knowing exactly what she should do or not do.. She said the cat turned and trotted away, sort of a fast paced walk.. 

She described how its ears weren't tall, but more short and stubby. The body was slender and colored like a deer, with a long tail that followed behind just like a cat.. She told me that she quickly walked away and when she got her phone she googled "cougar" and that picture came up, she said that is exactly what she saw.

SEEN BEFORE IN TOWN?

Just last year or maybe earlier this year (I can't remember) someone in Iron Mountain on E Street reported a cougar walking around the neighborhood in the middle of the afternoon, they never found it but I thought that was strange.

Quite a few years ago I remember someone reporting one downtown near the Moose Jackson Cafe, someone saw it run from the dumpster area and said within seconds it was to the train tracks and gone.

I myself have seen 2 cougars, once near Crystal Falls, Michigan that I even reported to the DNR and was laughed right out of their office.. A few years later (maybe 7 years ago) I saw one cross the road near the US-2/M-95 junction as it was chasing a deer..

Cougars are definitely around here and as people continue to get out walking and exploring new areas, more will likely be seen. Many believe these cougars are really no threat, unless you have a dog our walking with you not on a leash or maybe one running loose around your yard nears a wooded area.. For the most part, cougar attacks on people are very uncommon.

Teacher’s Viral Confrontation w/ Border Patrol Agents (VIDEO)

SAN DIEGO – Video of San Diego mother and middle school teacher Shane Parmely's tense confrontation with Border Patrol agents at a checkpoint in New Mexico has gone viral after she was asked if she was an American citizen.

Watch all (6) six videos below of her interaction with border patrol agents who are at a check point miles away from the border to Mexico.. The first video seems ok, they have a good conversation to start but that all changes really quickly when she refuses to state yes or no to the question, "Are you a Unites States citizen?"..

Part #1 "Being "Detained" - Basically, make sure you have a full tank of gas to keep your air conditioner running, some water and some snacks. I also recommend a pillow cuz this was a great place to take a nap. And they do have bathrooms in the cells where they hold people when they pull them out of their cars (my son got to use it)."

Part Two:

Part 3: "After a 15 minute "timeout" she came back and asked if I was ready to go. I said yes and then it came with a catch... Admitting that I, "Ms. Connelly", was a citizen. I told her she had the wrong name and I wasn't ready to answer. She doubled down and told me my name was Suzanne. Nope.
But Suzanne Connelly is definitely my new pseudonym."


Part Four: "Talking with the kids. E is now B-roll deity."

Part Five: "Using the bathroom while "detained" - The supervisor said my son couldn't go to the bathroom unless I told them whether or not we are citizens. She pointed to a bathroom past the checkpoint and told us we couldn't use it without answering."

Part Six: "Conclusion? - Seriously though, this guy interrupted my nap. And what's up with this dude's straight up nationalist propaganda? The philosophy governing our southern border (cuz there ain't none of this shit along the northern border or eastern or western) can be reduced to:
Fascism > Terrorism
As if these are the only two choices."


DO YOU HAVE CHECK POINTS WHERE YOU LIVE IN AMERICA? DOESN'T THIS JUST PISS YOU OFF?
