Cougars present in Champlain Valley

I must take umbrage with your article “Keeping track of cougars” [March/April, 2014]. In it Rainer Brocke is quoted as saying the Adirondacks are a “pipsqueak park” with too few deer and too many roads for cougars to survive.

The Champlain Valley is alive with deer. Just take a drive around the back roads and check it out. And in the past two years we have repeatedly sighted big cats near Lake Champlain, and none has been road kill. Many have left their tracks as proof.
