There are way too many cougars in that part of the world. My old trapping and hunting partner lives up there. Twenty years ago there were a lot of deer up there. They outlawed hound hunting and the cougar population exploded. Now wolves have moved in. There aren't many deer left so those predators have to eat something. A few years back a cougar chased a deer through the Walmart parking lot in Colville in the middle of the day. Sure scattered the women and children.

Mid day. In that part of the world half the men were at work. The other half were too hung over or stoned to be at Walmart that time of day. :cowboy:

In the end, it is usually safer to hike alone in the bush than it is to hike alone in many cities (world wide) after dark.

I would rather deal with a four legged creature over a two legged creature any day of the week.

Always remember this - no matter where you are - going to church on a quiet Sunday morning, or walking in the park, or climbing a pretty snow capped mountain - you are always a potential target for someone or something.

Always.

Keep your head about you and always look behind you once in a while.

It might save your life some day.

Sad that this happened to the lady but in truth animals kill to eat and a two legged target is often an easy kill for food. When you are in the bush you are part of the food system and if something that is hungry decides you are the main course then either kill or be killed. It truly is that simple.

Be armed. It works. Because the predator is always armed - teeth, claws and more strength than you.

Now - enjoy the day.

Best to all
