Mountain Lion reported in southwest Allen County

Greene County, Indiana, cougar

There is another report of a wild mountain lion or cougar living in Indiana, this time near Fort Wayne.

According to this story in the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel, local police officer Bob Girod is convinced that he has seen the big cat in his yard.  Furthermore, one of his German shepherd dogs suffered serious injuries that the veterinarian says are consistent with a large carnivore such as mountain lion.

So far, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources hasn’t pursued the matter, though officer Girod has placed several infrared trial cameras in his yard to convince the DNR.

You might remember that last year, the DNR did confirm a mountain lion sighting in Greene County.
