BELLEVUE, Wash. —

A state Fish and Wildlife officer says a cougar that was hit and killed on Interstate 405 in Bellevue is apparently the same one that killed a duck Saturday in a neighborhood in nearby Medina.

Sgt. Kim Chandler says the cougar found dead Sunday night is an adult male. He says that's a little unusual because it's usually young cougars that get into trouble wandering into urban areas.

Chandler says the cougar may have come out of the Cascades and might have been trying to go back when it was killed trying to cross the freeway.

Wildlife officers searched for the cougar Saturday after the duck was killed. Chandler says it's apparently the same cougar that was sighted a week-and-a-half ago in the Woodinville area.
