Default NY Cougar shot thurs-8/23 rumor or fact-6K.

I just got off the phone with my friend who lives on oneida lake(north Bay)and this is the story he told me. App 10 days ago there was an article in the camden newspaper about a large cat seen in the town of florence which he says is just north of camden ny(6-K I think). The news paper said to call the local police if one was spotted or ifany livestock had gone missing.He then goes on to tell me that a person living in the town of florence reported that one was in his yard last thurs pm(8/23) and told DEC about it. DEC said that it was not possible. It appears that this person waited on the roof of his barn and shot it with his rifle.He then called DEC back and said they should come pick up there cat since it had a tracking collar around its neck. My friend did not see the animal dead but he claims others had seen it before DEC took it away. He also stated that nothing appeared in the local news papers after the alleged incident.I don't want to start any rumors but would like to know if anyone has heard anything about this situation.
