Just wanted to make sure everybody was aware there was another cougar sighting near Hector road. While it's unlikely a cougar will attack a person, it's always important to be cautious and aware that they could be around. Recently a child was attacked by a cougar near Sproat Lake, so it's important to be aware. The Conservation Offices Website reminds us that if a Cougar does show interest in you respond aggressively. Maintain eye contact, show your teeth, act loudly. If possible arm yourself with rocks or sticks as weapons, but crouch down as little as possible to pick things up. Anyone attacked by a cougar is encouraged to fight back.

I'm looking forward to connecting. Due to being in and out of meetings both for council and business, email is typically the best way to get in touch with me. If you prefer to call, that's fine as well, it just may take me slightly longer to get back to you. Texting is also welcomed.
