SUBJECT: U-M DPS Security Bulletin - Suspicious animal sighted on North CampusYikes. Michigan DNR maintains that cougars were expatriated form Michigan in 1906, though they do admit cougar DNA and hair have been found in the state in the last 10 years. Nevertheless there is a devout movement documenting the presence of these cats in Michigan.
TO: all University of Michigan-Ann Arbor students, faculty and staff:
Today (8:30am) DPS received a report of a sighting on North Campus of a suspicious animal, described as a possible cougar, near Hubbard Road between Green Road and Stone Drive. Police officers and housing security personnel searched the area but did not find a suspicious animal.
Please take extra precautions if you are in this area, especially with young children and bicyclists. If you observe a suspicious animal, immediately contact University Police at 911 or (734) 763-1131.
