PORT LUDLOW, Wash. —

A Washington state Fish and Wildlife agent says a large male cougar believed to have killed a bull on the Olympic Peninsula has been tracked with hounds and fatally shot.

Sgt. Phil Henry said the cougar killed Thursday weighed 155 pounds, ranking it among the biggest he's seen.

Marilee Liske tells the Peninsula Daily News her husband found the dead Holstein bull when he went to feed the family's cattle Wednesday morning. She says it had been killed, dragged a ways and buried.

Henry estimates the cougar was 5 years old.
