CLARKSTON, Wash. (AP) - A Washington state Fish and Wildlife officer says an underweight cougar found hiding in a barn on the west side of Clarkston, Washington, has been euthanized.

The Lewiston Tribune reports (https://is.gd/mb2dkz ) that Officer Paul Mosman said the cougar was killed Thursday after a week of reports that a cougar had been seen in and around the southeast Washington city.

Mosman says the cat was about 2 years old. He says it was probably trying to scavenge for food but chose to do so too close to people and their pets and livestock.
