We recently shared the story of a woman reportedly seeing a mountain lion off the roadway, south of Millville. She stated that she was sure what she saw way a mountain lion or cougar.
This follows a report earlier this year where a Galloway woman reported seeing such an animal while out walking her dog.
Now, we've received several reports of others in New Jersey who also say they saw a mountain lion.
BT wrote us about his experience:
"One other gentleman and myself almost 10 years ago saw a mountain lion on our worksite in Clinton NJ. It was late October and leaves were mostly down on our 500+ acre site. In the spray field which is leased to a local farmer, I was driving the roadway down to another building on our site and saw slinking quite quickly a large deer colored cat with a body close to 4 ft long and a tail about the same length. I know bobcats and it definitely wasn’t one especially having a 3+ foot tail that was quite thick.
I mentioned it to several coworkers and nobody believed me! Then, a gentleman who worked in our IT department said, “I believe you. I saw it too while jogging at lunchtime.” At least someone else believed me.
My cousin and her boyfriend, who own 40 acres in Mansfield Twp NJ saw one on their property as well. They definitely are here! I don’t doubt that woman’s experience in south Jersey one little bit! Just a matter of time until fish and game acknowledge it. With all the deer, geese and other prey everywhere, why wouldn’t they be here!!!!"
KL had this to say:
"Several years ago my husband and I were walking the oval path at Natirar. We were on the left of the stream and saw a big mountain lion perched on a log on the other side.
