VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - Wildlife agents captured a cougar early Friday in the backyard of a Vancouver home.
KGW reports (http://bit.ly/10nbcTZ ) the homeowner heard his dog barking, looked out the window and spotted the cougar in a tree.
Wildlife agents shot it with a tranquilizer and hauled it away in a cage. They planned to release it later in a remote area.
The wildlife department had received several calls earlier about the cougar but had been unable to find it.
Another cougar has been sighted recently in Lake Oswego, Ore.
