[ARCHIVED] Report of Cougar Tracks at Laurelwood Golf Course

Over the weekend, Eugene Police received information of cougar tracks near the fourth hole at Laurelwood Golf Course, 2700 Columbia Street.


This is a reminder for people in that area to be observant and keep their pets close when recreating in natural areas. Eugene has many natural areas and parks that are home to a wide variety of wildlife. These natural areas are one of the many attractive aspects of Eugene. Deer, squirrels, and birds live in these areas, but there may also be occasional, stray visits from cougars and other predators. Eugene has areas that are close to forested and rural areas where bears and cougars reside. People should always be respectful of the fact that all wildlife is in fact “wild” and should be given a wide berth.


Here is a link to ODFW pages with information/tips about “Living with Wildlife” (cougars). http://www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/living_with/cougars.asp
