Cougar Spotted In Juneau County

10/22/11 – Wildlife biologists with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources have confirmed that a photo of a cougar taken in Juneau County is legitimate. A trail camera snapped the picture last Sunday. It shows a young adult cougar moving near some high grass. The landowner hadn’t checked the camera for several days, but the picture had a time stamp on it. It was taken about two miles north of Mauston. This is the seventh time a trail camera has caught a shot of a cougar in the state, though three of the seven pictures may have been of the same animal.
