Wildlife biologists have verified the image captured by a camera in Juneau County is that of a cougar.

The photo was taken just before 9:30 p.m. Sunday about two miles north of Mauston.

Two biologists visited the site Friday to investigate.

“It’s obviously a cougar,” said biologist Adrian Wydeven. “It’s good sized, most likely a young adult.”

This is the seventh time a trail camera has captured a cougar in Wisconsin. The DNR believes three of the photos were of the same cougar.
