One of the best places to camp and hike in Wisconsin is now a little wary as there have been reports of cougar sightings at Devil's Lake State Park.

According to Channel3000, the DNR is asking all residents and visitors to the park  to "help track down a possible cougar reportedly seen over the weekend" by filling out a form they have available on-line.

The department said that over the weekend they "received a number of reports of a cougar in one of the campgrounds at Devil’s Lake State Park."

Scott Walter, large carnivore specialist with the DNR, said "at this time, with the evidence they have and information from a number of tracking experts, it is not possible to confirm the sightings."

That's why they need everyone to who may have seen something to fill out this form.

Also, they encourage park goers to be on the lookout for cougars or any large type animal they may see roaming the park or surrounding area and of course report it with this form.
