Some residents of Deschutes River Woods are taking the cougar sightings in stride. Resident Elise Michaels, whose neighbor is the one that saw a cougar drag a deer carcass into their yard, says every couple of years the big cats become more active. "They're around all the time and a few years ago, they were a lot. They were in the area really frequently. And we lost a couple cats even, and we attributed it to the neighborhood cougar." Michaels says she is kind of glad that they cougars are busy this year, because there are a lot of deer in the area and they devastate her tomatoes and flowers.  She says all the neighbors have dogs that are kenneled, and when the dogs hear an usual noise like the growl from a cougar, they all start barking and scare the cats away.  She says she is a bit concerned that, if authorities shoot a cougar, that it’s killed and not running around angry, and hungry, because they would be dangerous.
