MONDOVI, Wis. (AP) - A cougar is roaming western Wisconsin's Buffalo County.
The cougar was photographed by an outdoorsman using a trail camera on land between Gilmanton and Mondovi after dark Saturday. A biologist from the Wisconsin DNR verified the sighting after discovering tracks in the area.
It's only the second verified cougar sighting in Wisconsin this year. The DNR has been able to confirm visits from just six male cougars to the state since 2008.
The Winona Daily News reports the DNR hasn't been able to find additional evidence that would allow it to track the cougar.
The DNR says cougars rarely attack humans, but if you encounter one, don't run. Instead, face the cougar and spread your arms to appear larger. The DNR also recommends yelling or throwing rocks and sticks.
