Girl shot cougar following her brother

See also

The state Fish and Wildlife Department reported that a little 11 year-old girl shot a cougar that she saw following her teenage brother in Washington State. The female cougar was four years-old and weighed about 50 pounds.

Officer Cal Treser stated, “This cougar was very, very skinny.” This made the third time a cougar has been killed in just a week.

Treser revealed that the children’s father, Tom White had chased the cougar away from their calves twice. Only to have it return the next day and follow his son who was on his back into the basement door of their home after feeding the dogs.

According to Treser, he told his father who was in the basement about the cougar and White said, “’Close the door’ and the cougar was right behind him.”

It was White’s 11 year-old daughter who had a tag to hunt cougars who was the one to shoot the cougar.

Fish and Wildlife stated that agents have tracked and killed five cougars for attacking domestic animals in the same area. Five others were killed near there by hunters.

The Fish and Wildlife department has issued five special permits that allow hunters to utilize dogs to track and kill cougars. They made the decision to issue the permits because of an unusual number of cougar problems this winter.
