Cougar sighting stories in the Great Plains states used to carry with them a sense of mystery and lore like one would encounter with a sasquatch tale. Those days are gone though as more and more midwesterners are seeing cougars and hard evidence in the form of trailcam images are popping up like thistles in a pasture.
The latest cougar sighting comes from Valentine, Nebraska where a trailcam owned by Kirk Sharp captured an amazing sequence as reported by the Omaha World Herald. A mature cougar was apparently jonesing for venison as the image shows the predator just steps behind a whitetail deer that forgot it was invited to the dinner party.
I wonder if Sharp will think twice about heading out to hunt in the woods the incident happened. Would it impact your hunting plans?
