Cougar Controversy: How to respond when the cats are in town

TWISP — In black and white, the facts seem rather fantastic. More than a dozen cougars have been killed in the Methow Valley this winter. Seven were killed at the hands of the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, in response to pets and livestock that were killed or mauled. The rest were taken by hunters, some after attacks.

An 11-year-old Twisp girl shot one cougar after it followed her brother to the door of their residence. Another was tracked down after it fought with the same dog that last year suffered a wolf attack. People also reported seeing a cougar crossing the Highway 20 bridge in Twisp, and walking through an orchard behind this small town’s grocery store.
