Sad End for a Noble Beasty

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) —After a number of reported sightings of cougars throughout the Portland metro area — including three early Friday — a cougar was spotted up a tree in Northeast Portland.

The approximately 110-pound cougar was euthanized by Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) staff, said ODFW spokesperson Meg Kanady, because it had lost its fear of people.
