DALLAS -- The Dallas Police Department has received two reports of cougars in the area around Southeast Fir Villa Road in the past week.
The first report came on Oct. 2 when a resident in the 200 block of Fir Villa found a sheep had been killed in a field next to her property; the resident suspected a cougar as the cause for the attack.
Dallas Police received another report Saturday of a cougar sighting in a field off Southeast Rhododendron Avenue, which intersects with Fir Villa and is within three blocks of the first report.
Cougars can be dangerous. Basic precautions can help keep pets and humans safe.
