Dog, not cougar, suspected of killing Prosser pigs

PROSSER, Wash. (AP) -- A Fish and Wildlife officer believes it was a large dog that recently killed seven pigs in Prosser.

Sgt. Mike Jewell says people first they thought a cougar was killing pigs in a fenced enclosure at Mid Valley Milling. But a worker shot and killed a large dog Monday night near the pen.

Some people who live and work in the area remain vigilant because they still think there may be a cougar nearby.
