The Conservation Officer Service on the Sunshine Coast isn’t having any luck catching the mother of a family of cougars, that are responsible for attacking 3 dogs on the Coast.

Sargent Dean Miller says officers have had no success at this point in trying to trap the animals in Lower Gibsons. The cougar family that consists of a mum and two kittens have recently been seen on resident’s porches and in backyards.

Miller says that while the animals are not showing any aggression, they are showing a higher comfort level around people. He recommends keeping pets inside or on a leash and limiting trail walking at night in the Lower Gibsons area.

You can report all wildlife sightings to the 24/7 provincial Report All Poachers & Polluters hotline at 1-877-952-7277.
