Another cougar siting in Bend. This time it was Wednesday night on Baker Road near the Deschutes Riverwoods area. Bend Police Sgt. Dan Ritchie says so far in recent cougar sitings the cats haven't displayed aggressive behavior. In this most recent case, the Sheriff's Office says a homeowner spotted the cougar and when deputies arrive they also saw another big cat. Earlier this week, there were 3 other recent sitings in Bend. “Warning signs have been posted along the Deschutes River in south Bend. Parks officials say the other sightings were in the south River Canyon area and the River Rim subdivision.” If you come across a cougar, you need to stop, make noise, act tall and large and slowly back away. New into the KBND newsroom: another cougar was sited in the Deschutes Riverwoods around noon Thursday afternoon. Two of the cats were seen by local residents near Manzanita Lane.
