Mountain lion spotted last week hasn't been seen again

Email

A mountain lion that ran away after it was almost captured last week in northwest Wisconsin was never seen again.

Jim Bishop of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources said the cougar is thought to be alive and it might have headed west to Minnesota.

Searchers used fresh snow cover this week to look for cougar tracks but they didn't find any.
