Researchers find no sign of cougars


Record-Eagle staff writer     

TRAVERSE CITY - They found signs of bobcat, coyote, red fox, river otter, mink, weasel, and red squirrel, but no cougar, National Park Service officials said.
      A fruitless search for cougars at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is the latest chapter in a tug-of-war over whether cougars roam northern lower Michigan.
      Researchers used motion-sensing cameras stationed around the park, investigated reports of sightings and studied animal tracks, but found no evidence of cougars, according to findings released Friday.
