Proof: Missouri Cougar Caught In Bobcat Trap

Another cougar shows up in Missouri and unlike so many Missouri cougar encoutners in the past this one miraculously ended well for the cougar.

The Department of Conservation wildlife biologist drove to Reynolds County in southeast Missouri to help relocate a cougar caught in a trap set out for bobcats.

This occured back in 2012 but I am only getting wind of the incident now.

The cougar as is typical was a young male about 2 years old 133 pounds out looking for a territory to call his own. The cougar was tranquilized and relocated to the nearby Current River Conservation Area.
