Otter Co-op issues warning after big cat spotted near 248 and Fraser

The Otter Co-op on 248 Street and Fraser Highway is urging caution after a cougar was sighted Thursday and Friday night.

“We urge all our customers and friends to stay cautious while in the Langley/Aldergrove area” says an online warning posted Saturday.

The notice said the big cat was seen near the store the “past couple nights” and advised that  ”  … if you are in the area and if you spot it, pick children off the ground and calmly back away. When you are a safe distance, report the sighting to the Ministry of Environment at 1-877-952-7277.”

Earlier this month, a warning was issued after a young cow was killed in South Langley.
