This morning, Wednesday, November 2, a cougar was spotted in the Pacific Way area.  This has been reported to conservation.  Here is a link to the WildSafe BC Conservation website that gives important facts about cougars, specifically with regards to child safety.  https://wildsafebc.com/cougar/


If you encounter a cougar, keep calm. Make yourself look as large as possible and back away slowly, keeping the cougar in view, and allowing a clear exit for the cougar. Pick up children and small pets immediately. Never run or turn your back- sudden movements may provoke an attack.
