BANFF, Alberta — A third cougar kill near the Banff townsite has prompted a formal warning.

A lone cougar killed a young-of-year elk off Tunnel Mountain Road adjacent to the campground on Friday (Jan. 18). Cougars have also taken down a coyote and a young mule deer close to town in the past three weeks.

Parks Canada also closed an area between Johnson Lake and Cascade Ponds Tuesday (Jan. 23) because a wolf pack is feasting on elk carcass.
