RCMP would like to warn North Shore residents about a cougar in the area for the safety of their families and their animals.

At 2:35 a.m. this morning, a resident of Granger Road, along Nelson’s North Shore, called RCMP to report a cougar had just attacked and carried off the owner’s 10-week-old Rottweiler puppy. The attack happened just 10 feet from the residence and the cougar did not appear to be afraid of the owner yelling at it.

A Nelson RCMP constable attended and searched for the cougar but could not locate it.

Conservation officers have been advised and will be looking into the matter further.
