Was she at least hot? The last cougar I had to deal with was nasty and was so drunk that she kept chasing me in my car even when I yelled at her to go away.

On a more serious note, I hope everyone and their pets keep safe from both types of cougs. Raowwwrrr.

Yeah, yelling at it to go away always works. Sheesh!

Go away to where? Ballard?

Is that how we ended up with their bear?

It's a Magnolia Cougar: bleached blonde hair in a tight pony tail, through the baseball hat….like the girls at Tri-Delt did back in 1978.

“As with many predators, a cougar may attack if cornered, if a fleeing human stimulates their instinct to chase, or if a person “plays dead”. Exaggerating the threat to the animal through intense eye contact, loud but calm shouting, and any other action to appear larger and more menacing, may make the animal retreat. Fighting back with sticks and rocks, or even bare hands, is often effective in persuading an attacking cougar to disengage”

Can jump 18 feet? Weighs 264 lbs? Nine feet long? Not your averaage kitty-cat.

They can swim…but I'm sure that they follow the railroad tracks along the greenbelt, and there is a railroad bridge just south of the locks.
