Cougar sightings up, bear calls begin

CASHMERE — Residents in the Wenatchee Valley are reporting more cougar sightings this spring, and also starting to see bears in the Leavenworth area looking for food, said state Department of Fish and Wildlife Sgt. Doug Ward. Ward said his officers are getting about five calls per week from people who’ve seen a cougar — some of them close to communities — including one Wednesday of a cougar sitting on a rock on the hillside near Rusty’s Drive-In in Cashmere.
