Abstract

"The Talk of Maine" piece on alleged mountain lion sightings in Maine. Keel Kemper, a veteran wildlife biologist with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, says statistically, the animal most often confused with the mountain lion is the white-tail deer. He has studied photographs and tracks and found they showed the presence of bobcats, coyotes, or other animals. Real cougars are the fourth-largest cat species in the world. Kemper says he's not bent on disproving people's strong convictions, but believes there is no evidence of a breeding population in the state.
