Wisconsin cougar

The Wisconsin cougar (Puma Concolor Schorgeri) is a possibly extinct cougar native to the 5 US states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri, Iowa, and Kansas. Like I said in my Japanese gazelle post, I live in Wisconsin. It wasn't really a separate species, it was actually a population of the North American cougar. There have been sightings from 2008 to October, 2013. There are also rare sightings of black bears, wolves, and lynxes. The other extinct cougar is the Eastern cougar, which was declared extinct in 2011. Lynxes, jaguars, and cougars are the only big cats native to the Americas.
