>>Sanctuary: Woman Killed By Cougar Didn't Follow Protocol
(Sherwood, OR) -- Officials at a wild cat sanctuary in Sherwood say failure to follow protocol may have led to the cougar attack that killed 36-year-old Renee Radziwon-Chapman. She was the head keeper at WildCat Haven and was attacked by the cougar Saturday night. Officials say Radziwon-Chapman apparently brought a hose into the cougar's cage, which probably made the cougar behave violently. Clackamas County sheriff's deputies say keepers are supposed to enter cages in pairs, but Radziwon-Chapman apparently entered the cage alone, which is against sanctuary protocol.
