A pair of cougars was spotted walking on the Skytrain tracks in Port Moody early this morning.
TransLink police spokesperson Anne Drennan told Global News the cougars were spotted around 4:10 a.m.
Drennan said two adult cougars were walking along the guideway through Inlet station towards Moody Centre station on the Evergreen Line.
Staff did a sweep of the area, but no cougars were found.
“It’s not clear how the cougars were able to access or leave the tracks. We are inspecting fencing to ensure there are no easy ways in for the cats. We will also be watching in case they return,” TransLink said in a statement.
Drennan says transit officials didn’t warn the public, but an internal memo was sent out to staff.
Conservation officers have also been notified.
