The Greenwich mountain lion is dead, according to our DEP, a victim of a collision in Milford. Maybe so, but I’d like to hear of a DNA match between the scat collected here and that collected from the poor pussy knocked off in Milford. And, preferably, testing conducted by someone other than our DEP.
There’s an idea floating about, going back at least fifteen years, that the Eastern Mountain Lion is not extinct but has been declared so so as to avoid the annoyance and inconvenience of complying with the Endangered Species Act. I personally think that the ESA is a complete crock that interferes with modern life as we live and need it, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t know who’s out there. Let’s have facts, and then decide.
