Maine Watch: Maine Cougars

Posted by: Loren Coleman on January 17th, 2012

The date for the story on cougars in Maine is Thursday, January 19, at 8pm. It will air again the next night at 9 and on Sunday at 5pm. The broadcasts will be on Maine Public Television Network’s Maine Watch.

The structure of the program will be interviews in the field with cougar eyewitnesses, State of Maine biologists, and me at the International Cryptozoology Museum. The in-studio host will then do a live interview with a federal official who supports the declaration of extinction for the status of the Eastern Puma (a/k/a Panther, Mountain Lion, Cougar, Painter, and other names).

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    There are cougars in Maine. I’ve seen one in the open when I was a teenager and last year hunting deer my cousin and I found scat that was not a bears and too big to be anything else. The teenage sighting was in the Pittsfield area an the more recent one outside of Ellsworth.
