The May 20, 2010 sighting (a remote camera photograph) indicated on the map does not necessarily record the passage of this cougar, because there was at least one other male cougar in Wisconsin on December 18, 2009 (DNA analysis), and possibly others that were not documented.  It is a more logical route than south of the Great Lakes through Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and southeastern New York because of the snarl of development and freeways it would have encountered.
