A Redmond man wants to warn Crooked River Ranch residents about cougars that may be in the area. The man, who doesn't want to be identified, says he was fly fishing in the Folley Waters area on Saturday when an aggressive cougar was on his trail. “It was about dusk and I was walking up the canyon and I don't know why, because I didn't hear anything, but I turned around and there was this cougar about 10 feet behind me. He was crouched position and looked like he was ready to pound. I was by myself and I had no weapon. He looked me in the eye and it was incredibly terrifying encounter, experience.” There have been no more sightings of the cougar since Saturday night.
