Cougar caught on camera in northwest Iowa 07 Sep 17

A trail camera has captured photos of a cougar roaming in northwest Iowa. The pictures come from Aaron Anderson of Linn Grove who has two photos of the cougar. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says this could be the same cougar that was confirmed last week in Cherokee. Other reports have come from Buena Vista, Clay and O’Brien counties. In late June in northwest Iowa a DNR officer killed a cougar that had been treed by dogs and was thought to be responsible for killing a calf at a nearby farm. This is the fourth cougar killed in Iowa since 2013.
