Cougar at the cabin

If you look at the door threshold of the cabin you will see what looks like claw marks of a cougar and tracks surround the cabin that travel down the ridge. There is a report on Mar 16th (facebook) of dogs putting the run on a cougar at the cabin, a healthy cougar reaction. Cougar tracks and sightings have been fairly common at the nordic centre this winter but this represents a more disturbing lack of fear of humans. However the cabin does represent a comfortable spot to lie in the sun for a cougar as well as humans so I don’t suggest fear but caution. Certainly an interesting encounter.
