Early this morning, a 9-1-1 caller reported seeing a mountain lion and a cub near Maury Jacobs Park in Eugene.

The 6:20 a.m. mountain lion sighting has not been confirmed. Eugene police visited the area after the call, and a state fish and wildlife trooper came later. Neither were able to locate the animals and there have been no further sightings. Brian Wolfer is the District Wildlife Officer.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has suspended its efforts to trap a third cougar in the Hendricks Park area of Eugene.  The agency says remote cameras have not spotted the cougar since Friday, March 14.  They have also not received any reports of sightings. 

ODFW caught and killed two cougars around the park last week after reports of local livestock deaths.  

Officials have now removed the cougar traps, but are continuing to monitor the area with cameras.  ODFW advises residents and visitors to the park to keep dogs leashed.
