Canby cougar responsible for killing livestock is dead

CANBY, OR (KPTV) -

A cougar suspected of killing more than 20 animals in Canby in the past several weeks has been found dead, according to wildlife officials.

A local man killed the cougar while it was on his own property.

Wildlife officials said after running some tests they found the cat to be a three to four year-old male weighing in at around 125-pounds.

After taking a tooth sample and measuring the animal, officials said they are confident that this is the killer Canby cougar and therefore will not be hunting any more cougars in the area.
