Tigard Police say there has been another cougar sighting in the area.

Police say at about 7:20 p.m. Friday, several people at Cook Park saw the cougar laying on the outskirts of the park. The animal then walked into a heavily wooded area nearby.

Police say the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has been notified about the sighting.

Last week, a neighbor took a photo of a cougar in a neighborhood.

Wildlife officials urge all park and trail users in the area of Cook Park to be cautious.

Tigard Police also urge adults to keep children under close supervision when outdoors.
