On Sunday October 14, 2012 at 1PM the Institute for American Indian Studies again hosts the program: Return of the Native Mountain Lions in Connecticut. Missed the presentation the first time or still think mountain lions don't exist in Connecticut? Here is your opportunity to decide if what you saw was indeed a mountain lion. Also known as cougars, pumas, or catamounts, mountain lions are huge felines who weigh about 150 pounds and have a long tail, unlike the more commonly seen bobcat.Bill Betty, a knowledgeable mountain lion speaker with more than a dozen personal sightings and close encounters with one of America's shyest Big Cats returns to IAIS. He will present amazing photographs while covering all aspects of mountain lion behavior, from reproduction to predation, from life span to habitation as well as their returning presence in Southern New England.
Space is limited, please call for reservations. Fee: $10 Adults; $8 IAIS Members; $5 Kids.
