Eastern Cougar Is Extinct

Easter Cougar Extinct

SO SAD!!!

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has declared the eastern cougar to be extinct.

This confirms a widely held belief among wildlife biologists that native populations of the big cat were wiped out by man a century ago.

After a lengthy review, federal officials concluded there are no breeding populations of cougars – also known as pumas, panthers, mountain lions and catamounts – in the eastern United States. Researchers believe the eastern cougar subspecies has probably been extinct since the 1930s.

The wildlife service said Wednesday it confirmed 108 sightings between 1900 and 2010, but that these animals either escaped or were released from captivity, or migrated from western states to the Midwest.

The biologist that led the study said:

"The Fish and Wildlife Service fully believes that some people have seen cougars, and that was an important part of the review that we did. We went on to evaluate where these animals would be coming from."

A breeding population of eastern cougars would almost certainly have left evidence of its existence, he said. Cats would have been hit by cars or caught in traps, left tracks in the snow or turned up on any of the hundreds of thousands of trail cameras that dot Eastern forests.

This declaration means the eastern cougar to be removed from the endangered species list, where it was placed in 1973.

What was called "ghost cat" is now just that.

Rare Sea Turtles Found Near Cape Cod

Filed under: TurtleRescue

sea turtle

17 rare sea turtles were found with multiple ailments off the coast of Cape Cod Massachusetts.

The turtles have been brought to a Mass aquarium to recover before being let back into the ocean.

The turtles were rescued by volunteers with the Massachusetts Audubon Sanctuary at Wellfleet Bay. They had body temperatures in the 50s when they should have been in the 70s.

The turtles usually migrate to warmer waters in the winter, but officials say strong winds on Wednesday most likely drove the turtles to shore.

At least they were saved before it was too late!

This is so beautiful!

Millions of butterflies have made their way to Mexico's internationally renowned reserve during their migration to Mexico's forested mountains in Michoacan.

The butterflies came from Canada in order to be in a more temperate place to mate during the winter months.

300 trees in the reserve are covered from the bottom all the way to the top.

Wow!

This must be such an amazing sight!!
