Several cougar reports led to a lock-in at Westridge Elementary in Lake Oswego Monday. Someone says they spotted a cougar in a tree around 2:00 p.m.
Another sighting happened near Jean Road and Central Avenue.
Wildlife officials say if you do find yourself coming across the path of a cougar you should call 911. Then stop, try and remain calm and maintain eye contact. If you have a child with you, while facing the cougar pick them up. You should raise your arms and your voice and clap your hands. If a cougar does attack, fight back with rocks or sticks or whatever you can. Above all, do not run.
