As many of you know, there have been 4 IDNR "confirmed" cougar sightings legitimized back in October/November of 2012. I am following a lead of another sighting coming out of Christian County. Several people have claimed a cougar was sighted 2 times this past week near the small town of Stonington IL as well as hearing it. Claims are they have heard a strange unidentified growling and screaming sound. The area just SE of town is heavily wooded with a creek. With recent rainfall, I am hoping to scout the area and look for any tracks. it was sighted on Friday and Saturday, so I'm not sure it would still be around, but finding tracks would still be neat.
