RAW: Woman claims she has a cougar living in her backyard

A Winston-Salem woman is dealing with a few uninvited guests in her backyard. Janet Nichols claims she has cougars in her yard prowling around all over her property. She’s at a complete loss as to what to do about the big cat living in her yard. She’s already spotted it prowling around three separate times. She thinks the big cat is living just beyond her yard. “They just go into that one spot turn around and go back into the woods. And that one, he sits there and watches a man on a lawnmower for an hour just sitting there looking,“ Nichols said. WFMY News 2 reached out to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office said cougars aren’t native to North Carolina. The North Carolina Wildlife also agreed with this. They said cougars were once common in the southeast, but their population died out. However, people still report sightings and tracks all the time.
