Cougar On The Move

The DNR has confirmed that a large cat captured on video by landowners in Washington County on February 7th is a cougar. They say it’s likely the same cougar that was confirmed near Rosendale in Fond du Lac County last month. They suspect it is now out of the area. There is no evidence that there is a breeding population of cougars in the state. The DNR says the animals occasionally spotted here likely came from the Black Hills area of South Dakota.
