The police, bless their hearts, were nothing but amused.
“We would like to sincerely thank the persons responsible as it made our day when we pulled up what we expected to be hundreds of pictures of coyotes, foxes and raccoons,” the department wrote on Facebook, where it posted some of the photos on Monday. “Thank you to the citizens who noticed the cameras. Your effort and sense of humor are greatly appreciated.”
One thing that was missing from the photo collection: a cougar. The department had placed the two trail cameras at Celebration Park after receiving reports of a mountain lion in the area. None was detected, police said. The pranksters, too, have remained elusive, the Associated Press reported.
