Cougar Alert - Arrowsmith CPR Regional Trail

A cougar displaying predatory behaviour was sighted on the Arrowsmith CPR Regional Trail Friday July 15th. The Provincial Conservation Officer is monitoring the case. To give the large cat time to clear the area, hikers are advised to stay away from the trail until Friday July 22nd.

Cougars are part of our natural landscape. If you hike in the backwoods, please ensure that you take all safety precautions related to cougars as well as bears. Be aware. For information on what to do when you encounter a cougar or bear, please Click Here.
