The cougar wandering in the Deschutes River Woods area over the last couple weeks has been caught and killed. Last night, wildlife experts with the Department of Fish and Wildlife set a trap using the deer it killed on Wednesday. The cougar was captured around ten p.m. Thursday night. Kevin Mace lives across the street from where the trap was set. He's relieved, but: “I'd like to see the situation kept under control. Like to see presence of Fish and Game and Sheriff's Department kicking around the brush and trying to find the thing.” People believed there had been two cougars wandering in the area, but wildlife experts say they only found tracks for one. They do advise people to continue to be alert about their surroundings for the next couple weeks.
