MADISON, Wis. (AP) - State wildlife officials are planning to hold an online chat about cougars.
Department of Natural Resources carnivore ecologist Adrian Wydeven and assistant carnivore biologist Jane Wiedenhoeft will host the chat beginning at noon on Wednesday.
Participants can join the chat by visiting the DNR's website and searching for the phrase "ask the experts."
Researchers say more cougars are leaving dense populations in western states and moving into the Midwest. Cougars are known to be largely secretive and mostly keep to riverbanks and wooded areas, usually avoiding humans and feeding on deer, turkeys and raccoons.
