The reality of cougars on the Atlantic coast came home when one was struck and killed on a highway near Fairfield, Connecticut in 2011.
Now there’s a surprising theory being heard about the sightings of cougars in the East.
A source (who wishes to remain anonymous) tells us that the Cougar Rewilding Foundation is involved in “a new ‘secret project’ for the dumping of wild-captured Texas cougars into the eastern USA national forests. A West Virginia native believes,” the source says, “the ‘dumping” of Texas cougars is already quietly underway, with more in the planning stage into other eastern national forests. A documentary is said to be in ‘production’ at present time,” which will be broadcast on a cable network.
“With all the sightings we have received in the last 4-5 weeks, I think its very possible, the dumping of Texas cougars is already underway in Virginia, Ohio and New York State, where sightings have gone wild,” our source relates.
We await more on this developing story, and the shocking “revelation” of what is supposedly coming in a program on a documentary cable channel in the near future.
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.
