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.
