Pumas on the Loose

For some reason, certain people treat reports of pumas (Profelis concolor) in the Eastern United states as "Monster" reports and include them under the heading of Cryptozoology. This is a map indicating good confirmed occurrances of pumas outside their acceped range (green) ober the past few decades. It is not a map that includes ALL sightings of "Eastern pumas" or anything of the sort.
The ,ap very clearly shows that the animals are tending to fill up areas where there is little or no competition with their own species, and that they canm wander a long way unhindered and without being detected. Once again, ALL such "Big Cat" reports are NOT Cryptozoological, they are merely unexpected by the local authorities. No reports of any animals whose species can be identified as having a currently known living and breeding population anywhere on Earth can strictly be said to be Cryptozoological.
