Residents in Moose Jaw got quite the surprise after a cougar was caught on a doorbell camera crossing a yard Monday morning.
Moose Jaw police say the cougar was in the area of the 900 block of James Street shortly after midnight but they were unable to locate the animal at that time.
He says he was working at the time when he received an alert on his phone.
“I get notifications to my phone whenever there is motion at my front door,” Reid said.
“I was at work and at 12:18 my motion camera went off alerting me. I tuned in to see the big cat walking across my front step.”
Casey said he notified police, who began searching the area immediately.
“We have had sightings on the outskirts of Moose Jaw before, (but) never in town that I’m aware of,” Reid said.
