LITCHFIELD — The Quest for the Eastern Cougar: Extinction or Survival? A presentation with Robert Tougias will be held Thursday, July 26, from 7 to 8 p.m.
Nature writer Robert Tougias journeys deep into the world of the cougar and into the reasoning of those that believe they exist and those that do not. For decades wildlife biologists have been telling us that cougars do not exist east of the Mississippi and yet each year there are hundreds of people claiming to have seen one. Eastern sightings have increased to offer better evidence of their existence.
