Please contact Kim Royar at Vermont F and W if you have not already done so. The biologists have an interest in collecting hairs and/or scats for DNA analysis.
I have four sightings/records of lynx and/or mountain lions. A sighting in October of a mountain lion followed by finding tracks during deer season that same year 1/4 mile away.
I think it is important to record these sightings to proper authorities to document their existence.

Subject: [VTBIRD] Glastenbury Mountain Lions
Not a bird but, today in Glastenbury between 730 and 800 a.m. I saw 2 young Mountain Lions. They were not small cubs but were not fully grown They were about to my knee in height. I was within 50 feet when they chased each other across the trail. A while later 1 went back over the trail the other way. I had a really good look, am familiar with Fishers and other wildlife and whether I'm believed or not, know what I saw and now believe fully there are Mountain Lions in Vt. Kevin
