Cougar sightings on the rise

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — There have been multiple cougar sightings on the Lewis & Clark campus in the past few weeks, campus officials said.

A notice went out to the Lewis & Clark community alerting them to the sightings. The notice said that earlier this week there was a possible sighting on the undergraduate campus.

The college didn’t say whether any of the sightings were caught on camera. They urged anyone who sees a cougar on campus to call Campus Safety at 503-768-7777.

Last month, surveillance cameras captured a cougar walking on home property in the Dunthorope neighborhood not far from the Lewis & Clark campus.
