Bikers Encounter Cougar on the Trail

A cougar apparently darted in front of two cyclists out for a trail ride earlier this week. Our news partner, News Channel 21 reports Jennifer Cosgrave and Suzanne Walsh, both from Bend, were six miles into the Marazak Trail Wednesday afternoon when they encountered the big cat. After seeing the cougar, Cosgrave called her husband to tell him where they were in case the cat came back; and he did a few minutes later. The cougar seemed docile and shortly after ran back into the woods. No one was hurt, but the women say they planned to act “big” by holding up their bikes if the cougar became aggressive. They said they are ready to get back on the trail again, but will be more prepared. AS Walsh says: “We have to shard it with them because it’s their home too.”
