Eastern Cougar Declared Extinct

Many years prior to this tragic declaration, the species could be found in the eastern states of the country – particularly along the Mississippi River. However, the Eastern Puma had been listed as an endangered species for some time – and hasn’t been seen in the wild in over 80 years.
