It was just a few years ago that the Michigan DNR vehemently denied the presence of cougars in Michigan, but things have definitely changed. Regarding this photo taken November 1st by an automatic trail cam in the Hiawatha Sportsman’s Club (located near Engadine in the southern Upper Peninsula), the Club writes:
This photo was confirmed by the DNR on November 3rd. The location is the area of S-trail / A-trail, east towards the perimeter of HSC property.
