Cougar family on the prowl

Two cougar cubs and their mother have been spotted by multiple witnesses in the Nk'Mip RV Park area of Osoyoos. 

The family has been spotted around 45th street, where locals say the cats have been around during daytime and seem unfazed by being near humans.

Conservation officers have been notified of their presence, and one local who reported the animals said she was told to throw rocks to scare the cougars away if she came across them.

There are some conflicting reports from locals on an Osoyoos community Facebook group as to whether the cats have been trapped and transported, and Castanet will update as more information becomes available.
