Cougar spotted in Happy Valley
A homeowner and children saw a cougar running out of a backyard in Happy Valley around 6:15 p.m. Saturday.
The Clackamas County Sheriffs Office tweeted they were looking for the cougar in the area north of Sunnyside Road, west of 152nd Drive.
A witness who lives in Happy Valley called 911 around 6:15 p.m. to report the cougar sighting.
Homeowner Tim Boivin spotted the cougar and immediately told the dozen or so children playing in the neighborhood to get inside.
This was not a full-grown, adult cougar, he told KOIN 6 News. It was a younger cougar and my first thought was to minimize the severity by getting the kids to go inside.
If this is a cougar, this is the second one in that area this year.
Deputies said around 8:30 p.m. they did not find the cougar, but said the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife is responding.
