SEVERAL CALLS HAVE COME INTO THE OREGON DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND WILDLIFE, ABOUT A RATHER TROUBLESOME COUGAR IN ASHLAND. MULTIPLE REPORTS HAVE COME IN, SAYING THE CAT IS ATTACKING DEER IN THE AREA OF THE ASHLAND LIBRARY. IF YOU COME IN CONTACT WITH A COUGAR, STAY CALM AND BACK AWAY SLOWLY AND GIVE THE ANIMAL SPACE TO RUN. YOU WANT TO APPEAR BIG, STRONG AND CONFIDENT. THE WORST THING TO DO WOULD BE RUN AWAY.
