Cougar spotted near New Ulm 13 Aug 18

A rural New Ulm family is warning other families after a cougar was spotted near the Lost Dog and Fox Hunters County Park.  Sonny Maurer and Kami Johnson reported hearing a roar from some trees and scanned their property with a flashlight when something pounced.  They set up a trail cam which captured a cougar walking down their trail.  Maurer and Johnson have contacted the DNR who told them the animals are just passing through and are not here to stay so they are not a threat.
