A police officer shot at the cougar (near Jordan Commons) with 12 gauge buck shot. He did not miss. You can see the cougar’s body jerk on the video when it’s hit. How’s that for a contributing factor to the cougar’s death? Even more alarming would be an officer firing a shotgun in a public place at a target he can’t hit. Police choose their targets, then aim carefully. Dogs, cougars, you guys better lay low for a while.
