I think a lot of folks have seen one once or twice. While there is no breeding population, it's obviously a fact that a mountain lion passes through occasionally. The cat that was the subject of "Heart of a Lion" was seen by many people at various points along its journey. Most of these people were told "You're crazy." "You did not see what you think you saw." "You saw a Golden Retriever (or a House Cat or whatever)." "You are an incompetent observer." etc., etc..

I understand the financial, legal and political reasons for this, but I think it's a shame that we demean people and call them stupid, when they know exactly what they saw.
