Another Cougar Sighting Confirmed in Illinois
The Illinois Department of Natural Resources has confirmed another cougar sighting in Illinois. This time, the big cat was photographed in Calhoun County.
Officials are also investigating another recent trail cam photo of a cougar that was taken in Pike County, and a spokesperson said they currently believe it's authentic.
This joins a confirmed photo taken outside the town of Warren, which is near the Wisconsin border, and another that was taken about five miles north of Jacksonville in Morgan County.
Officials said it's possible that the photos all show the same animal.
