A cougar attacked and killed a pet dog in Revelstoke on Mar. 27.

A cougar caught and ate a pet dog in Revelstoke on the evening of Mar. 27.

In an April 3 media release, police reminded residents that cougars are in the area.

The incident happened at about 8 p.m. near an Alpine Lane residence. Alpine Lane is located next to the Trans-Canada Highway, adjacent to Mount Revelstoke National Park.

A resident let their pet Schnauzer into the backyard. When the dog started barking, the owner tried to call it back inside. The dog didn’t return, and the owner heard a yelp.

The dog’s remains were found the next day.

Police and conservation officers were able to confirm a cougar preyed upon the dog after identifying cougar paw prints.
