Cougar in Port Coquitlam

A cougar has been spotted in Port Coquitlam.

The big cat was seen in a residential area earlier this week.

In a post on Facebook, city staff warned the cat was spotted near Blue Heron Crescent. There are several homes in the area and an elementary school located a few blocks away.

There are walking trails near the neighbourhood which wild animals could use as a corridor.

The city is warning residents to stay alert, keep children close and pets on leash.

Anyone who sees a cougar, bear or other wildlife is asked to report the sighting to the BC Conservation Officer Service at 1-877-952-7277.
