DNR says cat caught on latest trail cam not a cougar

The animal is a large house cat

Wisconsinites are on edge after multiple cougar sightings in Washington and Fond du Lac counties, Brookfield, Menomonee Falls and more. Recently the Eagle Police Department responded to this trend with a post of a trail cam video on Facebook.

The three-second long video shows a cat-like animal walking past a shrub in someone's backyard.

The Eagle Police Department commented on the post saying, "Our friends at the DNR tell us it's a cat, but since it was so huge we thought we'd put this out there."

The DNR has confirmed that the animal in the video is a house cat.
