Mounties are warning people in Colwood after a cougar was once again spotted around Royal Roads University over the weekend.
Conservation officer Peter Pauwels says a man was walking his two dogs on Saturday afternoon when a cougar came out of the bushes.
The man made some noise and the cougar eventually ran off, Pauwells adds.
Conservation crews searched the area on Sunday but didn’t find the large cat.
They’re advising pet owners to use extreme caution when walking the trails in the area.
Officials determined the cougar was seen in the same spot earlier in the week.
A woman told CTV News she was walking her dog on Thursday when they came face-to-face with the big cat.
Conservation officers say due to the cougar’s aggressive behaviour they have no choice but to put it down when it’s found.
