Long way to travel!!!

Saw this posted a day or 2 ago, and it's rather amazing.  This guy was hit in Connecticut, but DNA testing shows it came from South Dakota.  Long way to travel, just to be hit by a car... lol

He probably heard about those

He probably heard about those two legged East cost cougars and wanted to find out for himself what they looked like.

Lol. I've heard that the two

Lol. I've heard that the two legged cougars are far more dangerous and unpredictable than the four legged ones.

Anyway the logistics of how far this cat travelled is unbelievable. Every couple years or so we hear of an animal doing this but it's still amazing. I think it was a moose they tracked a few years back that traveled throughmost of the midwest. I know of many people that have never traveled even half the distance that these animals have in thier entire lives.
