Cougar spotted in rural community may have fled Keremeos Creek fire

Healthy cougar hanging out in the Twin Lakes area




A cougar was caught on security camera walking behind a home in Twin Lakes, a rural community 20 minutes from Penticton.

The big cat was filmed on Sunday, July 31, slowly passing a backyard in Grand Oro.

There is speculation that the cat may have fled to the area due to the ongoing Keremeos Creek fire nearby.

Neighbors warn to keep young children and pets indoors as the cougar was still hanging around this afternoon.

The Keremeos Creek Wildfire is burning in the Apex Mountain and Green Mountain Road area, but is fairly visible from Highway 3A as of Sunday.

It extends over approximately 440 hectares.
