Peg Broadcasting News/WVLT/TWRA Thursday October 6, 2016

Since September 2015, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has confirmed 8 cougar sightings in West Tennessee. Now an East Tennessee man says hes captured one on a trail cam in Union County. According to WVLT, Scott Thorpe claims the cougar has killed two of his horses. The TWRA has yet to confirm the sighting. Its illegal to kill cougars in Tennessee unless its in self-defense. The TWRA says should you encounter a cougar, never run, but instead make yourself threatening by standing tall, waving your arms, throwing objects, and yelling. Dont turn away, but back away slowly, and towards shelter like a car or house if possible. Pepper spray may also be effective. If youre with a group of people, gather together. If the animal attacks, fight back! Do not play dead. Report the encounter to local authorities and TWRA as soon as possible. (Photo Courtesy TWRA)
