Re: “Natural World: The trouble with people and deer

The tally of cougar attacks is greatly exaggerated. I have been keeping track of cougar attacks in the US and Canada since 2000. I also have access to compilations by others. Since 1998, only three people have been killed. All were adults who were alone at the time of their deaths. One of them was a bicyclist attacked in southern California in 2004. There have been only three so far this year, all resulting in minor injuries. You can see my data and the other compilations here - (Check out the spreadsheet.) Wikipedia has a list of fatal cougar attacks in North America here -

The last child was killed in 1997.

A single adult cougar wont be killing more than one deer a week unless they werent able to completely consume their kill (bears, wolves and of course humans may displace them from their kills).
