The eastern puma, which used to range from Quebec and Manitoba to South Carolina and Illinois, is now officially extinct, said Officials with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. The government agency has also removed the cougars from endangered species list. Taking the eastern pumas off the endangered list will enable eastern states, such as New York, to reintroduce western pumas, also called mountain lions, into the region.
