Woodbury cougar sighting comes up empty


A possible cougar sighting last week in Woodbury was unfounded, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

A resident in the 8000 block of Pheasant Run Road called at 12:57 p.m. Thursday, July 18, to report a cougar sighting.

Vuthy Tril, a DNR conservation officer, responded to the call. He did not locate the animal and did not find any tracks indicating it might have been a cougar.
