When I got home, I called the Fish and Wildlife dept. to report the sighting, as the area we were in had lots of farms with livestock nearby. The game warden told me that there were no mountain lions in North Carolina. I told him, flat out, yes there are, because I've seen one. He agreed, yes, he'd seen them too (even black ones) but that the official stance of the state Wildlife office was that there are no mountain lions in North Carolina. To say otherwise means that money would have to be spent on assessment, management, and education for the public, something that the state was unwilling to do.
I'm guessing that this animal will be dismissed as an "escaped pet" like they usually are, because I doubt that Connecticut wants to spend extra money any more than NC does.
