Twisp Cougar
« on: December 02, 2020, 06:01:35 AM »
Twisp Cougar


Cougar found taking up residence in a shed at a home on Burgar St. Up behind the motel and Quilting Hive. Took 4 officers and nearly a call to Governor Inslee's office to get the authorization to evict the kitty due to his no eviction edict. Eventually cat was sent packing up river. Who knows for how long. Use caution if you are out and about. Taking a walk, especially with kids and pets. Be safe

When I worked in Alaska we used a combination of 12 gauge rounds with rubber bullets, cracker rounds that exploded and large bottle rockets that exploded to discourage a horrible problem with urban black bears, 300 pounders and try and keep them out of residential areas. Sows would teach their cubs how to raid dumpsters, residential garbage cans and even take down garage doors if the garbage cans were inside and secured. Not sure if local LEO's have easy access to these resources.

This isn't the first one this year in Twisp, seems WDFW would be liable for hiding info related to predators and public "town" safety?

This is the real problem.  WDFW won't tell the truth about their predator problems.  They just keep feeding us BS and we keep taking it. :bash:

The season is still open why are they not whacking them until it closes.  They are becoming quite an issue around there.

As a person that does live in the general area the reason they aren't getting whacked is because of all the flower sniffing, bunny loving, skinney skiing, granola eating, spandex wearing peddle pushing,
 prius driving, liberal tree huggers that have infected the Methow. Personally I half hope a cougar gets a skinney skier might change some attitudes.

Now jingles  :chuckle: them there are the new "locals"!  Cats have always been a issue in the valley, only the "real" locals knew about them and their activity's!  Loved the last year we lived in one of the USFS houses in Twisp.  Two of them took up residency behind the bunk house, the neighborhood soon had a decrease of "pets" wondering the streets at night!!  They were there of just over a week then disappeared.   Ole one armed Ted could tell countless story's about just outside of Winthrop!!! :chuckle:

One can hope.....I'm tired of the above described Granola crunchers going for runs with their dogs at dawn in the hills....they drive ALLL the way up there to do that.  Has to be a place closer to run....and they are BURNING GAS to get all the way up onto Fawn Peak...

Ha haaa! But isn't the top of fawn peak private? That guy built the steel container type cabin up on top and then the court's made him move it back a ways to not break the skyline.
