I cannot believe the conservation officer did not go to Peter Greer after hearing reports of a cougar sighting . You would think that cougars at an elementary school would rank pretty high on their priority list. Or not....

A few years ago they found an injured cougar up in the tree right at the playground at the Winfield boys & girls club where the preschoolers go to play ...

If people knew how many cougars there are around here, they'd maybe realize why the co doesn't respond every time someone sees one.

Last number I have was from 2012, 2 conservation officers for the whole okanagan. They can only be in one spot at a time and that's alot of ground for just 2 people.

And what would they do when they get there now that the cougar has passed through. Lots of schools have sent home letters warning of cougars spotted but usually the cats are moving through the area.
