The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has confirmed the sighting of a cougar in Wayne County on property located in an area between Linden and the county seat of Waynesboro.
A trail camera captured the cat’s image on Sept. 4 and the agency, as it does when it receives reports accompanied by credible evidence, began investigating the report.
The wildlife agency has confirmed eight sightings since September 2015, with the previous five confirmations in Humphreys County. This is the first documented sighting in Wayne County.
A list of Tennessee confirmed cougar sightings can be found on TWRA’s website at www.tnwildlife.org.
Other states surrounding Tennessee are also confirming the presence of western cougars, which have been expanding their range for years.
There are no hunting seasons established on cougars in Tennessee. Anyone sighting a cougar, especially accompanied by supporting evidence, is asked to contact the TWRA. Telephone numbers and email address are listed on the agency’s website.
