Cougar tracks?

My wife and I have found what we believe to be cougar tracks around our property. Some of them were literally less than six feet from our front door. This picture was taken on November 27. The canine print on the right is from our 50-pound greyhound. Could you please direct me to whom I can contact to confirm whether this is a cougar track?

Although there are similarities to cougar tracks, Stuart Kenn, president of the Ontario Puma Foundation, identified the tracks in the photo as canine. Rick Rosatte of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources supplied the photo below, noting the distinctive characteristics of cougar tracks.

Kudos to heroes

It was wonderful to see Louise Kindree, Marilyn Field, Carol Hall and Joy Bell recognized in your magazine. They are cornerstones in our community and we admire all of them. Also great to see the amazing story on Michael McCreary. All of us want our kids to grow up and find their place in the world, so as a parent, it was a heartwarming article. To have Neirin on the front cover and to read his story was brilliant. What a beautiful animal. Well done.

Congratulations Karen (Campbell) – it is great to see you are making a difference in the lives of so many young children.

Way to go, Karen! Well deserved. We have been members of the Everdale Harvest Share program for years and L-O-V-E it. Not only do we get access to some wonderful locally grown produce, but we have been introduced to some new (and delicious) veggies. It is wonderful program and definitely deserves our support.

Dear friends in “the Hills” and McCreary family. It is a true honour to know you and to work with Michael. We look forward to many more performances and years with Michael as a stand-up comic with Spark of Brilliance. Thank you most sincerely for mentioning us in the article.

Cold day, warm thoughts

On this rainy, windy March day, I’m looking through the winter issue of In the Hills seeing what’s on to make it more pleasurable. Gosh, rereading it is just as good as the first time. The magazine just keeps getting better and better. I think we’ll take in the Alton Mill. Can’t wait for the spring edition.

Can’t wait for spring! In the Hills makes winter more bearable.
