Two cougar cubs are spotted in a rural area of Deschutes County recently, so  the Sheriff's Office issues a warning. 

 

Sgt. Deke Demars says about 8:30 last Thursday morning, a resident living on Boones Borough Drive near Dale Road spotted the pair of cougar cubs in a yard.  They did not see any adults. 

 

Shortly after, the cougars disappeared.  Sheriffs deputies searched the area, but could not find them. 

 

They have issued a warning to residents:

 

*Do not to disturb the carcass of a dead animal, especially if you believe it was a cougar kill.

 

*Keep outside lighting "on" where livestock is present to deter cougar attacks.

 

*If there is a cougar sighting in your area,do not walk your dog at night. 

 

*If you encounter a cougar, walk away slowly, keeping the animal in view and notify 911 immediately.
