I don't get too concerned about occasional discussion of mammals if
it doesn't get carried away.  I have seen coyotes often enough, live
and as roadkill, but not everyone is up to date on their status and I
think it is something any birder would have at least a passing
interest in.  As for cougars, I have spoken to someone who firmly
believes they saw one in Naugatuck State Forest, but until someone
can provide some solid documentation there really isn't much to be
