A question to clarify your posts. Is it your position that cougars do not exist in NYS?

Yes. There are no wild breeding populations east of the the Prairie States and north of Florida:

Big Picture

Every single confirmation in the Midwest but one in the past 25 years are young males. A wild female or kittens have yet to be documented east of the Prairie States. No females, no recolonization. Had the CT cat found a female anywhere along his route from the Black Hills through the Great Lakes, Ontario, and the Daks he would have mated with her and stayed to defend his territory.

The confirmations in the Northeast prior to 2000 (the last one before the CT cat), the random confirmations for the past 50 years in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic States were former captives.

Another rare potential eastern female pioneer was shot near Bismark, ND. Despite the school lockdown, a cougar has not been implicated in an attack east of the Rockies since the 1850s. There have been just 3 cougar-caused human deaths in the US/Canada since '98; none since '08.
