This brings back a lot of memories. I lived in Mc:Kean, PA. I thought the cougar was actually shot in Mc:Lane which is between Mc:Kean and Edinboro where it says it was shot. I was 10 yrs. old at the time. My brother 4 yrs. older than me let me tag along with him and his little four ten. Didn't realize at the time that he was going to use me as cougar bait. We came upon tracks that sure as [beeep] looked like a BIG cat! He told me to stay put by this stand of pines hoping he'd get a shot at the cat. I swear I heard growling. Then come to find out Mr. Gallant shot a cougar within about 3 to 5 miles of where we saw the tracks, and only a week or two later. I remember a big crew went after the other cat. I thought that they did eventually get it. I just called my oldest brother. He said they never did get the second cat. Sorry for going on and on...I've been wanting to reply to this post for a long time.
