BEND, OR -- State biologists say they don’t expect a spike in cougar sightings now that the deer and elk migrations have started in Central Oregon. ODF&W Regional Biologist Corey Heath, says more cougar sightings will likely occur after snow falls and pushes wildlife out of the high country. Heath says cougar sightings have been fairly common in rural and urban areas of Central Oregon over the past year or so, but says there have been no attacks on humans. He says the only fatal cougar attack occured last year near Mt. Hood. However, Heath notes there have been cougar attacks on some pets and livestock in Central Oregon.
