Several recent cougar sightings in Crook County near the Ochoco Reservoir can serve as a warning. Brian Ferry with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife says this is the time of year when they see more wildlife follow the herds down the mountains and into the more populated areas. Last Thursday, a Crook County Deputy had to shoot an injured cougar that was too close to about 40 homes near the Reservoir.  "I think personally that we have coyotes, and cougars and other wildlife around far more than a lot of folks realize. Most of the time they're pretty benign. It's just a matter of keeping an eye open and we certainly hope that people will call us if folks are noticing animals being observed and displaying what we would call atypical behavior; not normal for them.” He says for example if you see wild animals during the day and they aren't afraid of humans; you need to call local authorities. And if an animal is injured, don't attempt to treat the wildlife.
