Never in all my years of living here in the Pacific Northwest (granted was away for a decade plus) have I ever heard of a cougar blatantly aggressively attacking an adult human and killing them but it has happened and has quite a few here really shook up.

Not quite sure why this particular cougar opted to stalk and attack and kill a mountain bike cyclist but it happened and sure has everybody quite jumpy here now.

Personally I'm going with a theory that the cat was old, starving OR really young & starving and therefore looking for whatever it figured it could take down. Am thinking it was more a random happening than something that is going to regularly happen here now (but am thinking I'm the only one thinking this!)
