Greenwich Residents Have More Than A Mountain Lion To Worry About

A couple weeks back, an 8-foot long, 160-pound mountain lion started hanging around Greenwich, Connecticut and its nearby towns. News stations noted that a cat that size hasn’t been seen in those parts in 100 years; residents and people who work in the area were more than a little freaked the fuck out. Now testing of evidence found last week has revealed everyone should be doubly worried.

A sample of animal scat found on the Greenwich Audubon property last week is from the canine family and not from a mountain lion, the state Department of Environmental Protection announced Thursday.
The sample, found in Greenwich on June 12, underwent DNA testing by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Center in Montana. “These results are another step in our efforts to determine if the mountain lion struck and killed by a car in Milford on June 11 was the same mountain lion that had been spotted earlier in Greenwich,” DEP Deputy Commissioner Susan Frechette said in a statement.

So, one, whiskers might still be on the loose and two, you’ve got an asshole neighbor running around who thinks it’s cool not to curb his dog.
