Cougar kills dog in Cle Elum yard

The Associated Press

ELLENSBURG – A cougar killed a small dog Wednesday night in Cle Elum when the owner let the dog outside.

Washington State Fish and Wildlife Capt. Rich Mann told the Daily Record the cougar grabbed the dog and took off.

Kittitas County sheriff’s deputies and State Patrol troopers responded but were unable to find any trace of the cougar.

Mann says it will be killed if it is found because it killed a pet.

He says the cougar may be a female with cubs that was spotted on a trail camera east of town.
