FOND DU LAC, WI (WHBL) - A wildlife biologist with the DNR’s Plymouth Service Center says it’s pretty unlikely that a cougar is in the Eden area of Fond du Lac County. Dan Weidert says he was first contacted by a man on August 19th who said he saw a cougar cross his driveway and in his pasture. He gave Weidert the name of another man who had a trail camera photo from July. Weidert says the photo is hard to judge, but based on other things in it - including vegetation - it’s too small to be a cougar. Weidert says he couldn’t find any tracks and there were no reports of livestock loss. The DNR does have a website with information on reporting large mammal observations, including cougars.
