Larger than a bobcat, but not fully grown. Color of cougar: Tan Description of sighting: Over the past few months, we have had numerous sighting of this thing of which we were pretty positive it was a cougar because it was big and we knew it.

I thought people would think I was crazy if I told anyone, then a few days later I heard about a hunter 10 miles away got a picture of it with a still hunting camera. After that I felt better.

I was travelling south on Hwy 76 from Brownsville to Somerville about 7 am.
It crossed the road about 20 feet in front of my truck. It was at least five feet long not counting it's very long tail. It was running fast and the tail was extended straight back. The object in its mouth looked like a small dog blacklike a house pet. I am sure it was a cougar, it was way too big and tawny to be a wildcat. Color of cougar: Tan and white Description of sighting: I was headind down Tarking road just off Prim springs road about in the evening. I noticed what I thought was a small deer on the side of the road.
I slowed down a little incase it darted in front of me. Thinking how strange the shadows and the head lights made it look. And just as I was passing it I realized it was a cougar and backed up to look at it again but it dissapeared into the woods.

Woman seeking couple buck creek tn would guess it to weigh lbs or so. Color of cougar: light tan Description of sighting: My husband and I were returning from Florida, on our way back to Wisconsin.

We saw what appeared to be a very large cat, about the size of a large bobcat, only it had a very thick, long tail. It was redish brown in color as it crossed the road in front of us. Reporter: Bobby McDaniel City of sighting : 3. At first glance I thought it was a coyote as I've seen several living on the old Langford Farm place for two years. On looking closer I realize I was watching a large cat from about yards away.
The cat looked like it was tracking and about ready to pounce on something. This cat was roughly knee high I'm 6'2" and looked smaller than a full grown German Sherpard dog. I estimate the weight 60 to 80 pounds. As soon as I made a noise calling my wife's house dog back the cat was gone in a flash. I'm not sure it was a cougar as I've never seen one before. However, if I had to guess what animal I saw this would be my guess.
I have seen a bobcat up close on the other end of the property a year ago and my daughter saw the bobcat a few days ago around the same place I saw it. But there was a big difference in size with this cat and it weeking a long tail. Color of cougar: Brown Description of sighting: We were driving seeeking from church on the Lord's Day February 18,and spotted a cougar in a horse pasture on Hwy As we passed by the pasture, my wife saw what appeared as a large cat in the field. We turned around to get a better look.
We watched the large cat from our van for about 8 minutes as it moved around the field and walked up the hill toward the treeline. The cat was large, brown with a long tail, and we could conclude nothing else except that it was a cougar. Closer inspection proved it to be a large cat of some sort. I ruled out bobcat when I noted the long tail. Color of cougar: Tan Description of sighting: July seeling For a period of about 1 week this cat would wander through a wooded area between mine and my neighbor's house during the middle of the night "screaming" like a panther.
He was observed during this period by my neighbor and also the one across the street. After a week of this I was driving down Brunswick Rd. There was no mistaking him for anything but a cougar. Once he crossed the road he stopped along the edge of the timber and stood there looking at me. I had immediately pulled over and was watching him through binocs at no more than 75 woman seeking couple buck creek tn away.
Again, no mistaking him for anything other than a cougar. He stood his ground for a full minute before disappearing into the timber adjacent to the river and headed west down the river bottom. Otherwise, he'd have to have been born in the wild the same year and probably not far from here. I notice 2 seeikng on the west side of the highway about yards from the road. I usually see deer in this field but thought these looked to dark to be deer. As I drove past them, one turned profile and began to move.
I saw the thick legs, short snout, and woman seeking couple buck creek tn for sure these weren't deer. As they moved along the edge of the field I realized these were Cougars. Both seemed to be around 30 inches tall. Reporter: Brian E.
Color of cougar: Golden Description of sighting: I forgot to date my sighting. Color of cougar: Golden Description of sighting: We were looking at used cars. As bucck were preparing to leave my wife looked across the road and spotted a large cat. We watched as it hunted and actualy pounced on something small. We have two distant pictures, it was severall hundred feet away.
It was one of the coolest coup,e we have seen since the sharks at Myrtle beach. I have often heard people say they have seen or heard the creatures, but have had my doubts. I am an avid outdoorsman and hunter, so I am always keenly aware of wildlife in my surroundings see,ing afield, as well as while I am driving the ro of North Georgia. We always use the Evans road short-cut which is just past Clear Creek Church and just across the new concrete bridge over Turkey Creek.
The time was approximately p. As we traveled east on Clear Creek road, I was looking in the fields on the right as we approached Evans road. These are basically pastures at the base of Osborn Mountain, just across from that old abandoned store. In the back of the field, far from the crefk and next to nt little creek drain, I noticed a single animal which I thought to be a deer based on its color and size, standing in the brown grass.
I pointed coupke out to Cuople, who was driving, just as we were about to make the right-hand turn onto Evans Road. As I watched the animal, it suddenly jumped straight up into the air and appeared to pounce on something I could crwek see, down in the grass. When it jumped, I noticed that it was a cat-like movement similar to womaan domestic cat or bobcat playing with somethingplus, I noticed it had a very long tail.
David eased the truck over to the shoulder of Bbuck road, and we had a clear view of the animal diagonally across the pasture, we estimated at a range of about yards. We were able to stand side by side next to the vehicle, each with a pair of binoculars, and watch the cat for a period we estimate to be minutes. The animal pounced numerous times on something we were never able to identify, walked in circles around it, and even laid down completely at one point.
The animal eventually casually disappeared into the small, brushy creek drainage in the field and dropped below our line of sight, but never appeared to be afraid or to acknowledge our presence, though several vehicles drove by on Clear Creek road while we stood there. The backs of its ears were black, with some darker markings and white on its face.
The inside of its legs and underbelly were white. In sharing myI have encountered at least 2 other stories of recent sightings in a general 5 mile radius of this area by credible individuals I plan on deploying a trail camera in the location this week to see if I can capture it on film. I am now a believer with a witness who also is, and I am after a photo now to dispel the myth once and for all. I will photographically document any tracks as well as gather a scat sample if I can find one.
Thanks, Jon D. Color of cougar: Light Brown Description of sighting: It was in MayI was planting cotton in the Durhamville area about 30 minutes before sunset when all i liked were planting my end rows. I came around a cormer and about 75 to yards from me was what i thought wpman be seekinh big bobcat, but when it turned to enter the fencerow I noticed it had a long tail draging the ground. I had always heard that these animals exists, but until that day I did not believe it. Now I am a believer!
Color of cougar: tan Description of sighting: While driving down hwy. Me and my two kids took the section line road exit, as we took the exit I looked to my right and saw a large tan colored cat. It had a long tail and white chin. It was crouched down in the wooman. I've seen bobcats several times in the past and this was not one. As I took a right turn I looked to my left and spotted a large cat standing in the middle of the road around yards away. The cat had a small animal in it's mouth that I assume was a squirrel or rabbit from the white marking I could make out.
I remember distinctly the long tail but what sticks in wpman mind the most were the legs on the animal, they seemed to be much bigger than I have ever seen. This was no dog or bobcat or coyote. I got a good long look before it ran into the brushy creek bottom. She had gone to make pictures off of a bluff in the woods. While I was sitting there waiting on her, I saw an animal buci about 30 yards.
First, I just thought crek was a deer, then I realized it was a Cougar. I have never seen one in the wild. It did not even pay any attention to me. It just went walking on by. I know it knew I was there, because it had to hear the diesel engine running. If my wife was with me she could have taken a picture of something even better than a fall landscape. Sat and coupld us raking our yard. Attacked our cat and ran off into the woods after we screamed at it. Light brown in color, aro8und 2.
White belly with couuple long tail. Color of cougar: brown Description of sighting: On a bck October night inI was leaving my sister's home just south of Hickory Valley, Tennessee. It was just past midnight and I had just pulled onto Highway 18 after closing the gate at the end of the driveway. A huge cat cleared the highway in one leap just in front of my pickup truck's headlights.
The cat turned its head toward the truck as it sailed by and the light reflected in it's eyes. This all happened in a few seconds. I at first thought to myself, "That is the biggest bobcat I've ever seen! I made no mention of this sighting to anyone until a few days later when a neighbor told me that she too had seen the cat.
Color of cougar: brown Description of sighting: My wife saw this cougar last summer at night under our outside light in owman back yard. It was kinda cool in her description of it because she said it was stalking a huge possum under the light as well. The possum turned around and took off, the cougar did too, out of the light. The reason I am posting now is because there has been a second sighting last week from a friend of ours near our house.
It's probably the same cat, because it has a very distinct description. It was a very large cat, seeking bigger than a bobcat, but it had a bob-tail, from injury or a physical deformity. Anyone else sees this cat, please me. This sighting was near Holly Grove and Hwy Color of cougar: tan Description of sighting: Saturday October 7 We were driving down Holly Grove Road about pm Saturday afternoon--we were in the block of Holly Grove Road inside the city limits when we spotted the seekibg, he ran across the road in front of us.

Hn I came closer, I could tell it was a cat--the way it ran and the shape of the body.
The size was probably a bit larger than a pit bulltherefore, much larger than a regular housecat! The tail was long and the face had distinctive black markings. I think it was a cougar, although most pictures i have seen of cougars show them being a golden color. This one was more gray with hints of brown. But it was definitely a wild cat of some kind and it was beautiful--I will remember the sighting for as long as i live!
Color of cougar: tan Description of sighting: My mother and I were traveling on Hwy 96 coming back from Murfreesboro toward Franklin, and just as we crossed the county line into Williamson County a large, tan, long tailed animal leaped across the rode. At first, I didn't want to report it for fear of being thought crazy but now I know my mother and I are not "losing it. Just makes you wonder why TWRA refuses sreking acknowledge their existence when instead they should seekimg educating the public on how humans and cougars can safely co-exist.
A mile or so before HwyI came upon a large cat standing in the road. I had to look twice as I had not realizing with my first look what it was. As I slowed down, I realized what I was looking at, a mountain lion. It Stood there for only a second, byck long enough to look into its eyes, and it bolted for the corn field on my left. With in only the blink of an eye, it was gone. First instinct was that it was a deer, but it had a long tail that faded to black on the tip.
It looked like it weighed about 75 pounds. Reporter: Ginger B.

It took me several days to research and find that it was indeed a Cougar. I'm glad your site is here, otherwise, people would not believe that this animal does exist in this area. Long tail and quite a leaper. Jumped about feet to some fallen logs and dissapeared into brush. Color of cougar: brown Description of sighting: It was in I ttn a mountain lion or wild cat several times in the couppe area on Humphrey's Blvd close to the light that turns into Walnut Grove.
Each seeing, the cat was eeeking into the woods around pm. The first time I saw it I thought I must of mistaken a large dog although it looked feline and nothing like any other animal. I then creel for it when driving down Seekinb and saw it again a few times in rceek late fall. I was surprised more people did not see it but I am sure it was a wild cat and looked exactly like a Mountain Lion.
It was light tan and bounded into the woods. I have not seen it in the last two years. It was the size of a St. Bernard only lean and sinewy. Color of wmoan brown with black coup,e near rear Description of sighting: In mid June ofI saw a large animal in broad daylight that I first thought was a large dog in my neighbor's driveway.

It was about the size of a large boxer dog, but it was difinitely a cat. It didn't seem to notice me, but sseeking very easily and gracefully jumped two longjumps from a standstill into the woods across the street. I told my neighbors about it, and they said it was probably a bobcat. When I looked them up on the internet, the pictures of the bobcat looked nothing like what I saw, and they were too small.
The cat I saw was big and looked more like a Mountain Lion. It was so beautiful I would love to see it again from a distance to take a picture of it.

While trail-riding in a wooded area at Shelby Farms, less than a quarter mile from the Horse Stable, I saw cougar crossing a heavily shaded byck that branched off about feet ahead of us. I was on the second lead horse, and for a slit second my reaction was "that's the largest bobcat I've ever seen," but as the animal made a graceful, silent leap across the ubck trail, there was no mistaking that silhouette for anything but a cougar. The tail was beautiful as it followed the big cat's arc.
Tail included, the cat looked like it was nearly 6 feet long.

I assumed it to be a deer. But it sorta stuck in my mind that the animal looked low to the ground and ran across the road in a rather undulating motion, cdeek a deer.
But it was about the color of a deer. Budk was no traffic at all. I slowed to 25 MPH to look closer as I approached the crossing location. The highway right-of-way was well mowed and short out to about 30 feet from the pavement where waist-high grass started. To my surprise, I looked through the windshield right into the eyes of a cougar. It had stopped on the ROW just short of entering the tall grass. The round face, short stubby ears, woman seeking couple buck creek tn long graceful tail with end curled were unmistakeable.
It was not a stray dog or cuple. I saw the animal for seconds at a distance of feet. As Ceeek passed, it stood motionless on the upward sloping rise toward the tall grassy area, which put it about eye level with me. There have been other sightings over the years in the same general area, which le me to seekiing that the animals are using the Wolf River corridor for east-west movement and crossing 18 Hwy from time to time.
Color of cougar: tan Description of sighting: I didn't see the lion, but my co-worker who lives in Fulton said that a man saw what he thought was a lion in the forest surrounding the area.

I at first thought it was a whitetail, but after closer buckk, I determined it was a cougar. Deer do not have thick legs and a long black tail and certainly they do not walk like a cat. However, I did not say anything about it until I heard some more people in my area mention sightings. I was told there were none and that they had not released any. In the Summer of sekeing, I had some dozer work done on the farm.
Before the grass started growing back, my wife, seeeking and myself were over there and found several tracks that I identified as LARGE cat tracks with the help of a book of mammals of Wojan America.

The county lines where Dickson, Houston and Humphrey's all come together. The last family sighting was as my oldest son was coming home about 12 pm, the cat walked across the road in front of him, we are about used to seeing them and have lost livestock to them in the past.
Our dogs want nothing to do with them, they usually wont ceeek bark at them. When I first moved here, I was a city girl, the neighbor told me when you see the black cats don't panic. I thought she was nuts until I got in my car one morning a few months later,turned on the lights and standing not more than 5 feet in front of my car was a large grey cat.
He simply looked back at me and walked off. I thought maybe I was nuts too but since then I have seen many of them, different sizes and weights so they are breeding. My sons were out one night a few years back and a large cat was in our field trying to get our house cat out of a walnut tree the boys yelled and the wildcat left much to our Smokey's relief.

Years ago we had some calves killed by something and when I called TWRA they simply said they could not confirm any large cats in the area. I called the Sherriff's Department and they didn't seem to concerned Then I called the Wildlife Department and they said "Oh, yeah, they're around". This is the first time I've ever seen a cougar or heard of a cougar being in the Middel TN area.
We trail ride a lot in this area, so now I'm a little leery. Color of cougar: Brown Description of sighting: I have been a hunter all of my life and, untilhad always dismissed purported cougar sightings as local "redneck" lore. Inalong with another witness, I saw a cougar in broad daylight at approximately 60 yards in the bed of the Beaver Creek canal. I initially thought that it was a large bobcat, however, I saw its long tail when it turned sideways to drink out of the canal.
The cat probably weighed lbs. The sighting lasted approximately minutes. I was made doubly certain that it was a mountain lion when it walked straight up the sheer bank of the canal in a "spider man" fashion. I saw the tracks it left and they were vuck than any bobcat track I have ever seen. Couole friend and I are both certain bucj what we saw was a mountain lion.
Since this sighting, two other hunters on my property have reported seeing brown-colored cougars on the property. I do not expect anyone to believe my friend and I, just as I never believed any of the reports I had heard until I saw one with my own eyes.

I turned down the gravel road and run down to were they were. As I sekeing there one cat walked into the tree line and was gone but this field had a single tree about a yards off the gravel road and the other cat sat down and just watched me.
