I don’t yet have much info on this cougar that was caught on a trail cam near Athens, Arkansas. But it has just turned up after a whole slew of Missouri sightings.
Where it came from is still in question. Very unlikely that it has come from Arkansas… talkinga about the cougar not the picture. Arkansas has not yet got an established breeding population of mountain lions. You might hear speculation that it came from Nebraska but that would just be speculation. Unless good DNA evidence is collected we will never know. It is not any more likely to have come from Nebraska as from Texas, Dakotas, Wyoming or anywere else out west. Male cougars regualarly strike out when young on long distance journeys amounting to many hundreds of miles as they search for a place to call home.
