TWISP — The state Department of Fish and Wildlife has issued five special permits in the Methow Valley allowing hunters to use dogs to track and kill cougars in response to numerous problems this winter.

Wildlife officer Cal Treser said the special permits are the result of many sightings and incidents in which cougars have killed livestock and pets in the Twisp and Winthrop areas. They are called public safety cougar removal permits, and they’re issued when areas experience numerous complaints. Hunters with hounds are drawn by permits and allowed to hunt in specific areas.
