While driving into Niagara Falls down Montrose Road about a kilometer away from Niagara Square shopping mall, I saw what looked to me to be a very large cat sunning in a clearing.


I told my wife what I saw and she insisted we turn around to investigate further.

We turned around to see that there was a large cat-like creature lying down in the sun. We stopped on the side of the road and got out of the car.

My wife stood at the side of the road and snapped a few pictures as the cat got up and proceeded towards the bush line. As it got closer to the bush line another one stood up and they both vanished into the trees.

I am almost certain they were Lynx however I am no expert.

They appeared to be about 2 ft tall with pointed ear and shaggy fur.

I have seen nothing like this before but have heard stories of them being spotted in the area.

The exact location is on Montrose Road between Blackburn Parkway and Brown Road.

There is a stream the runs east west and opens up just before intersecting with the road. This is where we spotted them.

What an incredible experience!!

Thank you so much for sending this report and your pictures, I know our readers will find this as interesting as I did!
