The large animal was seen near the Molalla Redi Mix plant, one block from Highway 211.

A full-grown cougar was sighted this morning in Molalla as it walked across a road one block from Highway 211.

At 4 a.m. Friday, a Molalla millworker driving home from working night shift spotted the cougar crossing Molalla Forest Road near the Molalla Redi-Mix plant. According to his friend Britany Stewart, of Molalla, the cougar casually crossed the street in front of the man's vehicle.

Anyone with small children or pets living in the area may want to keep them indoors or under close watch for the next few hours, as a precaution.
