Cougar shot and killed in Kennewick
A officer with the Washington Department of Fish and Game shot and killed a cougar this morning in Kennewick.
It all happened near W. 3rd Place and Morain after the cougar was spotted in a tree.
An attempt to tranquilize the animal was not pursued out of concerns for public safety.
We have a crew at the scene and will have more on this developing story tonight on KAPP/KVEW Local News at 5 & 6:30.
