Everyone interested in cougar safety should bone up on this. Prior to our feline friend taking up residence on Bowen the most dangerous animal was the biting swan that lives at the lagoon. When you're used to living with a swan as the top of the food chain, it pays to be a little more mindful of what the cougar might do.

One interesting fact is that there have only been five fatalities from cougars in 100 years or so while two people a year in BC are killed by bees.

Watch out for the bees!
