Geography: eastern cougar

Self-tutoring about animal life in North America: the tutor mentions the eastern cougar.

Once found in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, as well as the eastern US, the eastern cougar’s presence is doubted now in Canada, and it has been declared extinct in the US. In the west, of course, cougars continue.

Some of my ancestors saw a cougar in Cape Breton about ten years before I was born. Reports of cougar in eastern Canada trickle in, suggesting they may still be present.

Whether the eastern cougar is distinct from the western is debated.
