A cougar was caught wandering through an Aldergrove neighbourhood after a home surveillance camera recorded the cat in the early morning hours on Monday, June 28.

The sighting took place at 33 Ave and 266a Street, which is near a forested area on the southwest edge of town.

Resident Vanessa Labreche said she reported it that morning and the conservative officer confirmed it was a cougar.

“He didn’t say anything about being a danger to the public,” she explained. “He just said he will add the sighting to his database so that they have a definite confirmation of a cougar in the area in case they get any more reports from around the area.”
