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.
