Cougar pair spotted fighting in northern Minnesota


NASHWAUK, Minn. — Two likely cougars, or mountain lions, have been spotted in northern Minnesota — fighting.

The exceedingly rare event — wildlife officials aren’t aware of two cougars being spotted together in Minnesota before — raises the possibility that one could have been a female.

Which raises the possibility — albeit a remote one — that we might be on the verge of a breeding population that could establish itself permanently. That hasn’t happened since European settlement.
