Today, another Michigan cougar sighting was reported in Newaygo on a local Facebook community site. Cougars were more common in Lower Michigan over 100 years ago. The first sighting in recent years was verified in Lansing in 2017 according to The Detroit News. The (wild) west side of Michigan hosts the Manistee National Forest that features a plethora of wildlife, even black bears. In 2015, an Mlive article states that evidence of wolves was collected in the northern lower peninsula. Why do you think there has been an increase in large predetory animals lately?
