Bend's Prowling Cougar is No More

The cougar spotted around Bend has been captured and killed.

Posted By on Fri, May 13, 2011 at 9:30 PM

Yesterday, a friend sent over this photo that he snapped while walking near Brookswood Blvd.

There was plenty of cause for alarm as a cougar -- likely one cougar -- had been seen throughout the southwest part of Bend and Deschutes River Woods.

But KTVZ is now reporting that a cougar (or the cougar) was captured in DRW after it killed a deer in someone's backyard. The deer's body was then put in a trap, which eventually captured the 120-pound male cougar, which was then euthanized by ODFW officials.

Check out the story, complete with video images.
