NEWSLINK: Conservation officers kill cougar in North Vancouver
Conservation officers shot and killed a cougar in a North Vancouver backyard Monday morning after becoming concerned it could pose a threat to the public.
Conservation officer Todd Hunter went out to the Edgemont neighbourhood in the 3000-block of Highland Boulevard around midnight, after getting a call that the cougar had killed a house cat in the owner's backyard.
Hunter said he was worried about that, because the yard is in an area close to a school, bus routes and a construction site.
