The Puma is the largest of the small cats and thus, can purr. Native to the Americas, the Puma is known by many names including cougar, mountain lion, or panther.
Mountain Lions have been spotted in Connecticut in a Nature Preserve across the street from Cedar Lake in Wolcott.
It’s probably not a good idea to walk alone in the woods anymore; but rather take another person with you to stay safe. Taking a camera along is a good way to shoot a big cat and not hurt anyone.
Another good reason to keep your dog leashed at all times.
