Local Wildlife: Mountain Lions, Bobcats and Bears...Oh My!

From Milford to your trash can, here is just a small sampling of articles on mountain lions, bobcats and black bears that have appeared on The Haddams-Killingworth Patch.


Over the last couple of years, Patch has reported on and featured reader-driven stories of wildlife in Connecticut as well as in our own backyards. It seems as if some wild animal is always making news in Haddam, East Haddam or Killingworth!
