Bellevue has most cougars in the state; we're not talking cats

Bellevue apparently has the largest number of cougars in the state, and we're not speaking of the animal variety.

KOMO TV reports that dating site confirms Bellevue tops other cities in the state in the number of older women seeking companionship with younger men.

The site reports Bellevue has twice as many cougars per capita as any other Washington city.

The website, with over 3,218,000 members, is a dating service meant to pair "women in their prime with younger men."

Tacoma reportedly ranks second in cougar population density among Washington cities.
