BEND, OR -- A day after a suspected cougar attack in southwest Redmond that left a dog injured, a cougar was spotted in Deschutes River Woods. Deputies responded to Agate Road, near the lava flow, at about 9:15 Saturday morning, after a neighbor saw the big cat bedded down in some bushes. 


Despite an extensive search, they didn’t find the animal but the Sheriff’s Office is in contact with Oregon’s Department of Fish and Wildlife regarding the sighting. 


If you encounter a cougar, the Sheriff's office says don't run. Move slowly, keeping the animal in view as you get away from the area. If you live in an area where a cougar has been spotted, don't walk your dog at night, and supervise pets and kids while outside. Click HERE for more information.
