Cougar Sighting in Brookfield Cannot Be Confirmed
DNR officials said the description given by the witness did not match the description they had on cougars.
A man reported on January 23 he had spotted a cougar at West Capitol Drive and North Calhoun Road. He had contacted the DNR about it, he said, and had been advised that the local police should also be notified.
The DNR said the sighting cannot be confirmed because it was difficult to investigate due to the snowfall and there are no plans to look for the alleged cougar, reported Brookfield Now.
Additionally, the description given the by man did not match up information the state had on cougars.
