Provincial police say they’ve been made aware of some social media posts suggesting cougars have been seen north of Guelph.
The cougars were reported to be in the Belwood Lake area, but OPP say neither they nor the Ministry of Natural Resources can confirm the sightings.
They say people should contact provincial police or the ministry to report a cougar sighting, since they don’t routinely monitor social media for such public safety concerns.
The OPP would like to remind anyone who comes across a public safety concern to contact police at 1-888-310-1122 or for emergencies 911. The OPP do not routinely monitor social media for public safety concerns or hazardous situations.
