John Gallant shot the female cougar Oct. 28, 1967. He was out squirrel hunting when two cougars were hiding in the brush. He shot at the larger 200 pound, eight foot long cat that was not found. This is the 48 pound female that he did shoot as it tried to climb a tree. Not only did John prove mountain lions exist in Pennsylvania, I believe he "escaped danger that day"! Holding the cat with him is Don Helmbreck.
