It would be a fantastic thing to have an apex predator, like the cougar, back into the Adirondacks. It will help keep a more natural balance of wildlife.

If it were well known that cougars existed in the Adirondacks it might discourage the once-a-year, urban hiker. I don't think it would have any impact upon most, if not all, of us here in the way we approach our hiking/backpacking.
