Ahh, western Michigan, land of tulips and right-wing politics, where Garfield lookalikes are magically transformed into vicious cougars.
Brian McVicar of the The Muskegon Chronicle reports:
Chris Larson was all but certain the animal with a large, lean body and sloping tail she recently saw prowling near her friend’s Rothbury home was a cougar.Although this is the equivalent of someone in Flint mistaking a carp for a shark, I say keep fighting for what you believe in Chris Larson. Don't let the DNR steal your dreams.
Wildlife experts from The Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment have another name for the animal Larson spotted on Friday — a large house cat.
“I feel in my heart that this is definitely not a house cat,” Larson said, adding she knows what cougars look like and doesn’t have poor eyesight. “I know what I saw.”
