A five year old Redmond child and family dog narrowly escapes an encounter with a cougar north of Redmond.

 

Sgt. Troy Gotchy with the Deschutes County Sheriff says around 9:20 Friday morning, a homeowner on Northwest Way reported her child was playing outside when the family dog began barking and would not stop.

 

The homeowner saw a cougar sitting on a branch of a nearby tree where the child was playing. She grabbed the child and contacted a neighbor, who came to the house and shot the cougar in the tree.

 

An Oregon State Police game trooper and ODF& W officer came to the scene, but did not file charges against the neighbor, as it was determined that the cat as about 100 pound male that posed a threat to the residents.
