Only You Can Prove There are Cougars in Connecticut

Are you as obsessed with the idea of Mountain Lions in Connecticut as the Anti-Couric is? Do you want to put your hard-earned money toward catching photos of them on trail cameras, rather than, say, making a charitable donation to Heifer?

Enter: The Northeast Mountain Lion Project!

There’s a video and everything! Yes, you can head over to indiegogo and help finance a project to get trail cameras up and running across Connecticut to get elusive pictorial evidence of Connecticut’s growing cougar population. (We’re already planning on finding the cameras, dressing out middle-aged aunts up as “cougars” and parading them around in front of the cameras.) So far they’ve made $745 of the $9,000 goal. So if you want to know, once and for all, whether or not you’re in danger of being eaten alive every time you take the dog for a hike, then you better get to donating!
