Cougar spotted in a Spokane neighborhood successfully relocated
SPOKANE, Wash. — Officers with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife successfully relocated a cougar earlier this month.
The cougar had wandered too close to civilization, which led to the response from the department.
It had been spotted sitting in a tree in a Spokane neighborhood. Officers tranquilized and tagged it, transporting it up near Mt. Spokane, where it was peacefully released.
According to Fish and Wildlife, the cougar was very well behaved during the operation.
