East­ern cougar is extinct, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser­vice concludes

pub­lished 24 July 2011 | mod­i­fied 03 March 2011

Although the east­ern cougar has been on the endan­gered species list since 1973, its exis­tence has long been questioned.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser­vice (Ser­vice) con­ducted a for­mal review of the avail­able infor­ma­tion and, in a report issued March 2, 2011, con­cludes the sub­species of east­ern cougar has likely been extinct since the 1930s. The Ser­vice will pre­pare a pro­posal to remove the east­ern cougar from the US endan­gered species list. (Source: Sci­enceDaily, 03.03.2011)
