Indiana mountain lion reports unconfirmed by DNR

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Reports of mountain lion sightings across Indiana continue coming in even though state wildlife officials haven’t confirmed any since nearly four years ago.

Department of Natural Resources biologist Shawn Rossler said about 300 reports of possible big cat sightings have been made since early 2010.

Rossler told The Herald-Times (http://bit.ly/MmCTNi) that one man made plaster castings of paw prints this week from a suspected big cat on his property near Morgan-Monroe State Forest outside Bloomington.

Rossler said those prints were likely left by a smaller animal, but that the DNR keeps reviewing reports.

The last mountain lion spotting confirmed by the DNR was in May 2010 from a motion-sensitive camera in a rural area just east of Bloomfield in southwestern Indiana.
