You Are in Cougar Country

South Beach Campground – Olympic National Park

This is one of my favorite campground signs. For all the wrong reasons.

“To most visitors, glimpsing a cougar in the wild is thrilling”


“Attacks on humans are rare, but can occur”

“Though few people will ever see a cougar, if you do see one, the following suggestions can increase your chances of a safe encounter”


“If a cougar is aggressive: don’t turn you back, or take your eyes off it”


“Don’t run. It may trigger an attack instinct”

“Shout loudly”


“Fight back aggressively”
