A specially trained deputy was forced to shoot an injured cougar that was very close to several homes in Crook County. Crook County Sheriff Jim Hensley says the cougar was near about 30 to 40 homes in the Ochoco Reservoir area. Last night a driver called the Crook County Sheriff's Office to report he hit a cougar on Highway 26.  So Deputies went out to find the big cat.  At one point when they were walking around,  they came within five feet of the cougar:  “The cougar appeared to be injured pretty severely and before they could get an opportunity to put the animal down it took off, running on them. And they contacted me, and I made the decision, with it being an injured cougar and there's residences in the area, and school buses run in the area,  and it would be a severe public safety threat with that cougar running around out there.” Sheriff Hensley said he had checked with ODFW first and they also agreed shooting the cougar was the best thing to do. The male cougar was about 2 or 3 years old and weighed about 90 pounds.
