Fred Neutz says he went into his tomato garden Wednesday at Kimberly Court in Mitchell Estates morning and found 13 large tracks that he thinks are unmistakably cougar tracks.

"So I look over in the garden area in which I have freshly screened dirt and all, I said 'Holy moley!'" he said.

The tracks are 3 and a half inches long and three and a half inches wide with claw marks at the toes. Nuetz says he's sure it's a big cat.

"I thought, 'That's not a deer,' because I have deer tracks all the time going through my muddy garden," he said.

Neutz says he's going to set up a video camera and he's called the Division of Fish and Wildlife.
