Evidence of eastern cougar in Fundy National Park of Canada
Recent DNA analysis of a hair sample collected in Fundy National Park of Canada in New Brunswick may add fuel to the argument that cougars are still roaming Eastern Canada.
The jury's still out, however, when it comes to confirming that an eastern subspecies of this people-shy large cat still exists. In fact, the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada includes the Eastern cougar on its "Data Deficient" list, which means that there is inadequate information to make an assessment of its true status.
