See Cougar! Make Noise, Walk Away
If you should see a cougar in the woods, you might want to wave your arms around and make a lot of noise to scare the cat off.
And, in Wisconsin, it's conceivable that you could have that cougar meeting. Because a big cat was caught on a trail cam near Mauston within the last week. Pretty rare sighting, says DNR biologist Adrian Wydeven
Wydeven says, by this time, the Juneau county cougar has possibly moved several counties away.
