There’s been another cougar sighting in the Deschutes River Woods area.

 

The big cat was seen munching on a bird in the yard of a resident on Shoshone Road Monday morning.

 

Deschutes County Sheriff's Lt. Kevin Dizney says they searched the area, but could not find the cougar.

 

He says this is the time when the big cats come closer to human areas searching for animals that feed on the plants in your yards.  "If you should encounter a cougar, one of the things we're encouraging you not to run, but to move slowly, keeping the animal in view as you move away from the area. And certainly, the Sheriff’s Office welcomes people who have cougar sightings to contact us. We're happy to come out and look at each individual case. And to keep the Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife appraised of the situation."

 

Dizney says there have been instances in the past where they have to remove or destroy cougars in the area- but that is not their preference.
