The Wisconsin DNR says there aren't any mountain lions in Wisconsin, but I've seen them before. I saw the big kitty in a neighbors cow pasture. It was slowly creeping up on a calf but one of the bulls chased it off. Pretty interesting thing to see.

I never heard the guy say anything about any of his cattle being eaten so he was lucky in that regard. There's enough deer around to feed a population of mountain lions though.

I know they are in Wis. they generally travel through Wis to get here in N. IL. we have had several confirmed cat sightings in the last few years and have current sighting less then 3 miles from my house. DNA testing done on the infamous cat killed in northern Chicago a couple years ago indicated the cat originated from the Dakotas. cougars will travel from their home range considerable distance in search of a mate. in fact they will continue to travel until they find one.

They are all over the place here in Montana. Haven't seen one while hunting, but have been in places where there were tracks all over the place.
