The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office says a post widely circulated on Facebook reporting a cougar sighting in the Horicon area is likely a hoax.
In a press release, the sheriff’s office says the picture attached to the post matches a picture from a cougar sighting in the Salt Lake City area from December of 2018.
The sheriff’s office also says it has not received any calls or first-hand reports of a cougar being seen in the area.
“As a result, we believe this report to be false in Dodge County,” the press release reads.
