Devil Cats of Vermont

Vermont Catamount

Vermont history is full of accounts regarding mountain lions prowling the woods and forests of Vermont. Supposedly, the last Catamount was shot in the town of Barnard in 1181.

Some folks call them devil cats while others call them a beautiful creation of nature.

The species was all but exterminated by the end of the 19th century. Yet, Catamount sightings persist, with the first recorded sighting near Craftsbury, VT in 1942. Since 1990, sightings have increased. Some believe that the state of Vermont knows of the Catamount’s existence and there is a conspiracy or cover up. According to the VT Department of Wildlife, there is no evidence supporting the existence of the legendary cat in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Devil Cats of Vermont!
