Vancouver BC: Cougar sighted Granville Island
Though unconfirmed which species of cougar police are referring to, it is certainly rare for Cougars to be seen wandering around the Bars and Nightclubs of Granville Island at 3:00 am in what is one of Vancouver's major tourist hotspots. Rare, in that Cougars usually leave with their prey well before Bar closing. Though elusive to capture, some Cougars, respond quite well to Cougar Bait, of which there is never a lack of young men willing to sacrifice themselves for the sake of Animal Rights.
Just to be safe and as a Public service I have taken the liberty of posting the two species thought prevalent in the Granville Area, as well as the bait used in it's capture.
Police issued a warning Monday morning about a cougar sighted on Vancouver's Granville Island.
"Within the past number of hours we have had two unconfirmed cougar sightings in the Granville Island area," said Const. Howard Chow.
"Two witnesses in the area reported that they had seen a cougar on the island," said Chow, possibly on the 1300 block of Cartwright.
As of Monday morning, police were patrolling the area, but were not able to confirm a cougar was in the area.
But Chow said since two unrelated people reported sightings, police were taking them seriously.
The sightings were reported around 3 a.m., said Chow, but with the increased morning traffic, it is likely the cougar has since gone into hiding.
Granville Island, a former industrial area on Vancouver's densely populated waterfront, is now a popular tourist attraction with a public market, small shops and restaurants filling the former factory and warehouse spaces.
It is connected to the rest of the city at several points and no longer isolated by water.
Cougar sightings are common in rural parts of B.C., but extremely rare inside Vancouver.
