2018-09-13 14:34
A female hiker who went missing in Oregon before being found dead was likely killed by a cougar. Diana Bober, 55, went missing in late August. Her body was discovered on Sept. 10. The body was in the Mt. Hood National Forest. Her wounds were consistent with a cougar attack. It’s the first fatal attack by a wild cougar in Oregon. “This is an unprecedented event in Oregon,” said wildlife official Brian Wolfer. A hunt was planned for the cougar, with plans to kill it and conduct DNA testing.
