- A cougar has been caught on camera too close for comfort at a Wisconsin home.
The homeowners called the Department of Natural Resources over the weekend when they spotted the cougar lying under a pine tree in their backyard.
Officers confirmed the animal was a cougar but could not neutralize the 50 pound feline because of the surrounding homes and thick brush.
The DNR returned to the home early Sunday morning for another attempt to capture it, but the animal was gone.
DNR officers think the cougar is about a year old.
They were able to track it to the southeast, but lost its trail.
Officers believe it's the same cougar that was spotted in Washington County two weeks ago.
