therre are a few breeds that shed little hair. You need hypoallergenic cats. They had a black bear at Bonneville dam yesterday. Like the sea lions he was drawn to the big pool of salmon queuing up for the fish ladder.

They said he'd be killed for habituation to humans which sounds odd cuz he just showed up. They use explosives to scare the sea lions so why not toss a few M80's at him from boats first?

Reminds me, the best time to visit a zoo is on a weekday with light rain. Try it and see.

We have cougars all over the place here. One lives in a Keizer Park. I feel silly doing it but when camping I keep a Ruko hunting knife on my hip.
Last week they rescued a woman from the forest on Mt. Hood after 3 days of being injured & lost. This is a pretty regular event in Oregon and so far not a one reported trouble with cougars. Since that area has a large population I think these cats generally avoid man like the plague.

Yeah they tend to make themselves scarce. They outlaw'd hunting them with hound dawgs in various places and that's when they seem to get over populated and attack humans every now & then. (Cali) So you got lots of bobcat & puma up there? They're all over the place here, wouldn't think you'ld find half the animals you find here in desert but they're here.

I've done some reading on the subject after discovering they walked the sidewalks of Hood River at night and were fairly common even in the valley itself.

cougars want nothing to do with us but young ones are still learning. If they see movement they interpret as fleeing prey it triggers a response. They may pursue and stop once they identify you.
Running with your dog can also cause problems. As in most cases of human/predator contact you have to do something dumb to get hurt.

Oregon's population is mostly centered near Portland & suburbs. These areas vary from heavily wooded Forest Park in Portland to interspersed forests & homes. The East end of Portland is situated at the head of the Gorge which is almost all wild country for 80 miles.

Portlanders use these recreation areas heavily and regularly find ways to kill themselves but I can't recall a cougar incident more serious than a cougar sightings in weird places.

Bigfoot is higher on my list of potential hazards.

Yeah, same with sharks too, they may come up bump & bite and say "YUCK!! That ain't no seal" but for the most part, nothing in the wild will eat humans. There was a young child malled by a puma in Cali, it was in an area where population was engulfing the traditional puma turf with no route of exit.
