Conservation officers in Sooke shot and killed three out of four cougars who were found feeding on a goat carcass. This was in the Ayum Creek/Ludlow Road area of Sooke. Residents in the area are advised to watch out for their pets and small children as one cougar is still likely in the vicinity.
Three bears, a sow and two cubs were tranquilized and removed from the Broomhill Park area and relocated up Island. As this is the time of year when bears come out of hibernation, caution should be used and children watched when outdoors.
