Cougar Forces Two Men Into Their Truck
HOQUIAM, Wash. (AP) - An aggressive cougar recently followed two men near Hoquiam, forcing them to retreat to the safety of their truck.
Puget Sound salmon manager Steve Thiesfeld said the two were completing a habitat survey on the Little Hoquiam River when they spotted the cougar following them, with ears back and hissing.
The two faced the animal, waved their arms and inched toward the road for about 20 minutes.
Theisfeld tells KBKW the cat came within striking distance several times before they made it to the roadway, where they climbed into their truck.
