What do you think folks, is this “untimely death” going to be the first sad event in the string of cougar-related deaths we’ve predicted? That would be bad enough, so we’re hoping for the family’s sake it’s not something worse:

State police are investigating after a hunter who was reported missing in Colchester was found dead.

Police said the death is untimely, but there is no criminal aspect. The man’s name has not yet been released.

His family called police on Wednesday morning and reported that he had been out since Tuesday night and might have been out tracking an animal.
