We went out with ODFW today and walked all through Bicentennial Park. It is believed there was a cougar there, but they think it has moved on. Cougars have very large home areas that they roam in (over 300 miles) and we are obviously within this ones. Always be watchful and aware and report any suspected sightings to us or ODFW.

It was reported to us that there was a cougar sighting in Bicentennial Park yesterday. We are looking into it and have Fish & Wildlife coming to assist as well. We will update our findings but want the public to be aware. Some things to keep in mind if you do come across a cougar: Cougars are more likely to go after loners than hikers in groups, although cougar attacks in general are very rare. Keep your eyes peeled for cougar tracks (four toes, and usually no claw prints since their claws are retractable) and droppings, and scan trees for fresh claw marks. Though cougars typically keep their distance from humans, the same cannot be said of household pets. Keep your pooch on a short leash at all times in cougar territory. If there’s been a report recent cougar sighting, best to leave your pup at home. STAY NOISY! As with bears, it’s a good idea to be noisy to avoid startling a cougar. Talk among your group, carry a bell, or get extra loud when the wind is blowing. BE BIG! If you do come across a cougar on a hike, stay calm. Make sure that the cougar isn’t backed into a corner: give it a chance to escape. Ensure that kids are protected, and back up slowly, keeping your eye on the wildcat. You want to make yourself look as large as possible.
