Nanaimo Cougar Encounter
NANAIMO – A close encounter with a cougar has left a young Nanaimo woman shaken, but with quite a story to tell.
The 18-year-old was riding her bike in a rural area on the west side of the city when she saw the cat and the cat saw her.
It crouched low and began to circle her, closing in on its prey.
But instead of panicking the woman jumped off her bike and confronted the cougar head-on.
