They thought that the eastern cougar went extinct in 1913. Several years ago they got DNA evidence that this wasn't true. About the same time, at sunrise, I heard some turkeys gobbling away and coffee cup in hand, I sauntered off to check them out. Was I surprised to come face to face (50 meters) with a cougar. We stared a each other for a minute, then he turned 180 degrees (as only a cat can) and 1, 2, 3 strides he was gone. You don't stay "extinct" for a hundred years without learning how to avoid humans.
