Absolutely. True about the lions in the East states. I lived in Pa. most of my life, had 11 acres in SE. pa. Almost 20 years ago. After a snow. Plowing my driveway. Saw these tracks and discovered that they were from a cat. Not a house cat or eve a large Bobcat. These tracks were big. And the distance between strides were much longer, a neighbor about A quarter mile away. Thought he saw a large cat walking across his field. I called the game commission and was told No such animals like that existed here. Nobody came out to look at the tracks or nothing. But I’ve seen several pictures of them. Since In Pa.DNR says there are no mountain lions in eastern states too. There are and in every state on the east coast in spite of experts.
