    Well, I'm 47 and have spent a tremendous amount of time in the woods and have never seen one until recently. If you never see one that does not mean they do not exist.

    Here is a fairly recent article on the subject which is interesting:

    I also know credible sources who have seen one in north-central NH, walking in the road, in the early morning.
    That is interesting as I heard someone else saw a big black cat in Vermont. now that would have to be one that someone turned loose I would think.

    I had a cougar cross the road in front of me about 30 minutes South of Moncton, NB. Gorgeous big cat! I reported it to Natural Resources and got laughed at for my troubles. I know many people who claim to have seen them throughout New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
