The Wisconsin DNR said a cougar recently sighted in Fond du Lac County is now out of the area. 

Video was captured by a landowner in Washington County last week. 

Biologists confirmed the video shows a cougar. 

They believe the video is of the same cougar that was captured on trail cameras throughout Fond du Lac County back in December and January. 

DNR officials said there is still no evidence cougars are breeding in Wisconsin.
