RICHLAND, Wash. — Police said they responded to a report of a cougar chasing a coyote at Meadow Springs Country Club golf course on Thursday.

According to the Richland Police Department, multiple people reportedly saw the incident around hole 2.

A woman named Lisa Reed wrote about the incident on Facebook:

Officers responded at 11:49 a.m. They did not see evidence of a cougar or coyote.

The report has been referred to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Earlier this week, another woman reported that a cougar attacked her dog and dragged it away from her home in Kennewick.

A state Fish and Wildlife officer who investigated that incident said it’s likely that the animal that took the dog was a coyote, not a cougar. The officer reportedly went to the scene and found no evidence of a cougar, but did find coyote tracks and drag marks that appear to be from the attack.
