Oregon first: Cougar kills hiker

September 13, 2018

By Oregon Sportsmen Association

The state’s first confirmed fatal wild cougar attack occurred on Mt. Hood in September this year and has made national headlines and international headlines.  The body of 55-year old Gresham woman, Diana Bober, was discovered near a Mt. Hood hiking trail.  The police autopsy showed signs of death caused by a large animal. There are about 400 reported complaints every year of cougars threatening people or attacking livestock.    This is what hunters predicted when Oregon banned dog and bait cougar hunting.

I wish we had more information from the Medical Examiner who did Diana Bober’s autopsy. Is it possible that she was already dead when the cougar discovered her and mauled her ? It would be a great miscarriage of justice if government hunters go out and shoot a dozen cougars, only to find out later that Ms. Bober was killed by her fall from that cliff.
