Another cougar citing in Bend. Last night, Deschutes County Sheriff got a call about a cougar sighting near Baker Road in the Deschutes Riverwoods area. According to the sheriffs report, the homeowner reporting the incident says the cougar was trying to get into their home where they have a cat.  Deputies also saw the cougar as it was walking away from the home and at the same time, a second cougar was spotted nearby. Sgt. Dan Ritchie with Bend Police says they have not had any indication of aggression from the cats: “I can’t overemphasize how important it is to be cautious. These are wild animals, they are unpredictable. We don’t want anybody to feel as though they can approach these animals. You know, we won’t want anything serious to happen. And the other thing is we haven’t hand any reports to indicate any reports to indicate any aggression towards humans beings at this point.” So if you see a cougar, immediately contact police.
