News Lincoln County has been informed there is an adult female cougar and three cubs roaming the Waldport area. They’ve been spotted at Eckmand Lake, the grade school, Patterson Park and the ball field by the post office. Mother cougar does not appear to be afraid of humans. At one point, when a human came into view the cougar crouched in order to stay out of sight.
Another woman observed the cougar taking a dog from her neighbor’s yard after it came out the doggie door.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office knows about the sitings. But if anyone sees the cougar they ask that you call 9-1-1 immediately and try to ascertain, without compromising your safety, where it is and/or which direction it was headed when last seen.
