Lillooet RCMP are asking the community to be on the lookout for a large cougar that was seen in the community yesterday.
On July 12 at 11 pm, a couple waved down police and informed them that there was a large cougar roaming around town.
The couple said the cougar was seen stalking a young buck near Russell St and 8th Ave. A nearby pub was closed for precaution, and the cougar was later seen chasing one young buck into the treeline towards the Heights area.
Conservation was engaged, but they said they would not kill the cougar if it was simply chasing young whitetails. If you see a cougar, please report to the RAPP line at 1-877-952-7277.
