BELLINGHAM -- Jordan Kirbyson said Friday that he and a couple others had finished water skiing last Sunday at Lake Whatcom when they thought they saw something in the water about 300 feet from Reveille Island.

Maybe a deer?

Not quite.

They were surprised to see a cougar paddling along in the water.

Jordan was able to take a couple of pics and this video of the swimming cougar. Thanks, Jordan!
