genpapier has left a new comment on your post "Amish Man Hospitalized By Mountain Lion Attack":
I hesitate to post this but don't see any harm. I was driving, last night, between Wellsboro and Sylvania and saw what looked like a mountain lion.
It was definetly not a dog, deer, house cat or bob cat. It looked slightly like an elongated pit bull in that it was muscular and was greyish tan. I would think it weighed 100+ pounds. It was low with it's head lower than shoulders and it's shoulders perhaps two feet from the ground - maybe a little less maybe a little more.
It was fast and direct and what I saw was a perfect side view. In the short instant I saw it clearly I detected no tail but it's head, shoulders and back was all feline. If I drew what I saw it would be a mountain lion. I've never seen an animal move quite like this outside. It's speed was tremendous.
It has played over and over in my mind and I just can't believe what I saw completely. It's strange to see something and for my brain not to be comfortable - like being in shock when you see something over and over like in slow motion.
I came across these posts trying to find out more and could relate to both the skeptics and the folks who have said seeing is believing. I would also add to this that in the few miles before my sighting of this animal I saw several small animals moving with their own directness and speed across the road. There was enough action to make me wonder if there was a fire or an earthquake.
This as an objective description as possible for me. I wish I had it to do over again because a tail would have clinched it for me.
