Once again, another cougar is sighted in the Deschutes Riverwoods area. Friday afternoon, just after 5 p-m, some local residents called the Sheriff's Office to report seeing a cougar near the end of Baker Road. Police were able to track the cat as it maneuvered around the homes in the area. They used a bean bag shotgun attempting to scare the cat away but were unsuccessful. The cougar approached several residences where voices could be heard and people were near the river. They made the decision to use lethal force to stop the cat, and it was hit but ran from the area.  Oregon State Police Game Division is now aware of the action and further attempts to find the cougar are being done.  This is the latest report of cougars being seen in the Bend area.  Police warn you to use extreme caution if you see a cougar; move slowly away from the cat, watching it the whole time and immediately call 911.
