Cougar kills mountain biker and wounds another

Cougar kills mountain biker and wounds anotherAmountain lion killed one mountain biker and mauled another in Washington state on Saturday when they rode into its territory, and authorities later said they shot the animal dead. The mountain bikers were riding together down a remote, backwoods trail in an area near North Bend, Washington state, about 30 miles east of Seattle, when the two men encountered the animal. In the ensuing attack, the first rider received deep scratches and the other was dragged away by the cougar to its den, according to Sergeant Ryan Abbot, King County Sheriff’s Office spokesman . The 31-year-old survivor rode two miles out of the area and called emergency services. Police drove up the trail, found the victim’s bike and went into the woods where they came across the cougar standing over the victim’s body, Mr Abbott said. Here’s a photo of the cougar that attacked two men on a mountain bike ride near North Bend today. One man died.

A deputy took a shot at the animal, sending it fleeing into the woods. Officers of the Washington Department of Fish and Game tracked the cat with dogs and killed it, he added. The survivor was taken to hospital in Seattle with serious but none-life-threatening injuries, he said. Patient status update: The 31-year-old male who arrived at Harborview this afternoon as a result of a mountain lion attack near North Bend is being treated in the Emergency Dept. He is currently awake and alert and in serious condition.— Harborview Seattle (@harborviewmc) May 19, 2018 Fatal cougar attacks are extremely rare in North America, with only about two dozen recorded in the past 100 years, most of them involving children. It was only the second deadly attack by a mountain lion in Washington State in the last 100 years, Mr Abbott said. Cougars are the fourth largest cat species worldwide, with adult females weighing up to 141 pounds (64 kgs) and males weighing as much as 220 pounds (100 kgs). They attack prey by ambush and usually attack humans only if cornered.
