Alex Tesar’s article about the elusive eastern cougar (“Bigfoot on Four Paws,” March) quotes Steven Maclean, a retired library assistant who has been collecting reports of cougar sightings in Nova Scotia. Maclean says of the cougar, “There’s a degree of believability that’s not there with, say, a leprechaun.” I would agree that the chance of finding an Irish person who has actually seen a leprechaun is somewhat close to zero. However, that hardly justifies denying the existence of these creatures.
