Minnesota Cougar Shot!

The cougar pictured here was shot and killed in Southwest Minnesota. The Department of Natural Resources is investigating the shooting because cougars are protected in Minnesota and the shooting doesn't appear to be in self defense. The cougar was a 125 pound male that was spotted heading into a culvert. Two men trained their headlights on the culvert and scared the cougar out. As it was moving away the animal was shot. At least that is what the early reports indicate.
