Conservation officers say they're monitoring reports of cougar sightings in the Charlie Lake area.
The cougar may have followed prey into the community, however, their presence is not a concern at this point, according to officials.
"We do live in British Columbia and that means Cougars are present and co-exist with us without conflicts all the time," said officer Tristan Montjoy.
Residents in the area have reported spotting a cougar, and paw prints in the Paradise area of Charlie Lake.
The Whiskey Jack Nordic Ski Club said Friday that a deer kill found on one of its trails in the Beatton Provincial Park was most likely killed by a cougar. The club is asking hikers and skiiers to be vigilant when on the trails.
The public is encouraged to report further sightings by calling 1-877-952-7277.
