(St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada )
This is a Cougar - could this be what you saw?
I was at school in St Catharines, and in our field I saw a very large cat.
It was light brown/beige and very big.
It was definitely not a house cat.
I heard that Lynx have short tails, but this one had a long tail.
Any ideas on what it could be?
Hello there - you didn't give us your name, and you didn't tell us exactly when you saw this big cat, and I'm not sure what this could be because Cougars shouldn't be in this area ..... but I did find a news report from July 22nd 2014, from the St Catharines Standard Newspaper, reporting that a Cougar had been seen near Welland, Ontario!
Did it look like this Cougar picture I posted above?
I have also posted this on our facebook page and perhaps someone there may know what you saw, so, feel free to check out our facebook page for more information about Southern Ontario.
Please feel free to "like" and "share" while you're there!
