A wounded cougar in the Deschutes Riverwoods area hasn't been found yet, and a local wildlife biologist says that could make the cat dangerous to people.  Last Friday the cougar was shot at, and probably hit, but not captured. According to the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office, deputies tracked the cougar for almost two hours as it wove its way through homes in the Deschutes Riverwoods area when the cougar got too close to a home near the river they decided to use lethal force. Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife Biologist Steven George says now that the cougar is injured, the cat may be aggressive. And so people in southwest Bend need to be more alert. “I would probably say the next couple of weeks to be especially observant, especially if you have kids. Yes, keep them close together.”  George says if you come across a cougar, be loud and large and don't run away; rather, back away slowly.
