The local waters out here teem with life. That includes several species of whales, including newly returned populations of humpback; dolphins and porpoise; seals and sea lions; sharks and rays; all manner of fish and shelfish; and mammals such as deer, bears and wolves migrating from island to island.
But a charter fishing operator out of Thasis on the west-side of Vancouver Island logged some video of a swimmer rarely seen - a cougar.
Turns out cougar are great swimmers and also migrate to pursue prey. It looks like the one in this video had a mind to take a breather on the guy's swim grid.
