Residents spot cougar in town
Lyle News for Sept. 13
September 11, 2012
By theA little late news came in about a cougar spotted in Lyle on the property of Michael Saunders at 114 Klickitat St. Besides his apple trees, he has a coop of doves that he feels might have been the target of the cougar's interest. The cat later advanced toward the trailhead rest area. As this property is across the street from the trailer park housing many small children and pets it would be wise to be aware and cautious. It was also reported that a hiker on the river's west side trail escaped one following him by jumping into the river and swimming to the sandbar in the Columbia.
