    I remember years ago they used to be trapped here. Never seen one in the wild nor have heard of any sightings recently.

    Cool i guess thats a bobcat. We have those in ga but I've never saw one alive or roadkill either. I do know a guy that has one mounted, so they must not be as good at hiding as panthers and sasquatch.

    tail gate lock, rear view mirror bracket, hood hinge brackets, and the list grows.
    I know a few years ago the State of Pa was including a survey with the hunting regulations book to fill out if any was seen, for documation purposes. I have hunted the last ten years in Pa but I haven't seen any at all. I have seen Bobcat in other places I have hunted in the Northeast. Never a mountain lion. It's a rumor I hear just about every year, just that a rumor.

    I personally have a friend who has taken pictures of one in his backyard

    He's presented the photos to the DEP and jokingly (half-jokingly, more like) told them: "Guess you can't very well fine me for shooting something that doesn't exist, huh?"

    I'm a huge hunter here in western va where it's mostly mountainous. I spend over 200 days of year scouting/hunting and cover hundreds of miles as well as run 18 trail cams. Never seen a track, kill site, photo or any evidence. First trip out west I came across a mule deer kill on the third day. I figured that's because they have them and we don't :). I'm sure there's the rare traveler/escapee that makes it to the east but seriously doubt there's a breeding population. No such thing as a black one either. With the hundreds of thousands of hunters, trail cams you would think there would be some hard evidence
