The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

As I was leaving Coldbrook after a miserable, cold round, an animal jumped out from the schule on the side of the road and in front my car.  My life flashed before my eyes, and I though "Not again!", then as everything went into slow motion, I thought I was about to hit Bambi.   But then I realized this was definitely not a deer- it was way to fast to be a small fawn (not to mention it did not look like a deer), way to big to be a cat, and way to scary looking to be a dog.  I then looked up pictures of cougars (No, not of Courtney Cox) and realized there is no way I could have been mistaken.  There have been numerous cougar sightings in SW MI, but the DNR continues to assure people that there are no cougars here.  So, golfers beware- this was less then a mile from the park gates!

If you want to see a cougar go to Bells on friday night!
If the field biologist is a good scientist, they would also point out that absence of evidence does not equal evidence of absence...
I have been fox and coyote hunting several times.... it definitely was not either. However, I am not going to argue about what anyone else thinks I may have or may not have seen!
Yeah sorry, there are definately cougars in Michigan. This is from the DNR website and it says that cougars were intially native to Michigan. My parents live ten minutes from Flip City, my mom spotted one in our woods.This is the DNR site
There's a cougar sighting tracking site for Michigan that has 4-5 sightings in Kalamazoo county in the past week.
Yeah there was a few sightings in the UP this year too, one of which was caught on a police cruisers cam. Plus police would never lie, right?
That's awesome that you saw a cougar Jenny. Seriously. That must have been pretty trippy.

My question is - how do cougars being around affect us discers? Do they attack people? Should we bring machetes and shotguns out to Coldbrook now?
Honestly, I doubt it will affect anyone, but if you or anyone brings a dog out there and your dog turns up missing....

Just thought I would share this. There are plenty of things on the disc board that don't affect most discers, yet many people find them interesting.

Pictures of Cougars !!!!

Your positive it wasn't a tan dog named daisy?
lol... no it wasn't daisy
