VANCOUVER — B.C. farmers should keep a close eye on their livestock after a series of cougar attacks in Metro Vancouver during the past 10 days, CBC News reports.
According to RCMP Insp. Darren Lench, the first death was reported Jan. 13 in rural Maple Ridge, about 40 km east of Vancouver. “We want to make our citizens aware of this,” said Lench, as reported by the CBC. “Although there are no reports of the cougar attacking humans, this type of animal is very unpredictable, and is a genuine cause for concern.”
So far, seven farm animals have been killed. Anyone who spots the cougar is encouraged to call police.
