9/17 Cougar Update
No new sightings over the weekend.
Since the first confirmed sighting on August 5, the City has worked closely with WDFW on all reported potential sightings and kept the public updated with daily posts on the Cougar Information page. Given that there have been no confirmed sightings since August 6, the City is now transitioning to periodic updates only when major developments occur.
Residents are still encouraged to contact MIPD by phone if they believe they have seen the animal; reports via social media are difficult for the City to act on in a timely manner.
