Cougars sightings on the West Side Trail
Posted on Nov 28th, 2020
Relatively few people will ever catch a glimpse of a cougar much less confront one. If you come face to face with a cougar, your actions can either help or hinder a quick retreat by the animal.
 
Here are some things to remember:
  • Stop, pick up small children immediately, and don't run. Running and rapid movements may trigger an attack. Remember, at close range, a cougar's instinct is to chase.
  • Face the cougar. Talk to it firmly while slowly backing away. Always leave the animal an escape route.
  • Try to appear larger than the cougar. Get above it (e.g., step up onto a rock or stump). If wearing a jacket, hold it open to further increase your apparent size. If you are in a group, stand shoulder-to-shoulder to appear intimidating.
  • Do not take your eyes off the cougar or turn your back. Do not crouch down or try to hide.
  • Never approach the cougar, especially if it is near a kill or with kittens, and never offer it food.
  • If the cougar does not flee, be more assertive. If it shows signs of aggression (crouches with ears back, teeth bared, hissing, tail twitching, and hind feet pumping in preparation to jump), shout, wave your arms and throw anything you have available (water bottle, book, backpack). The idea is to convince the cougar that you are not prey, but a potential danger. Carry an airhorn.
  • If the cougar attacks, fight back. Be aggressive and try to stay on your feet. Cougars have been driven away by people who have fought back using anything within reach, including sticks, rocks, shovels, backpacks, and clothing-even bare hands. If you are aggressive enough, a cougar will flee, realizing it has made a mistake. Pepper spray in the cougar's face is also effective in the extreme unlikelihood of a close encounter with a cougar.

Your HPMA Assessment provides the Garbage dumpsters for
HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE ONLY
(As a service to our owners, non-conforming items can be
disposed of in the dumpsters for an additional fee)
There has been an enormous amount of NON-CONFORMING
HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE IN THE DUMPSTERS 
(WITHOUT PAYING THE ADDITIONAL FEE)
(Furniture, Mattress's Bar-B-Q's, Lawn Mowers, etc)
~
This volume of garbage has BLOWN our garbage budget over by thousands of dollars.
As a service to our owners, non-conforming items can be disposed of in the dumpsters
for an ADDITIONAL FEE during normal office hours.
(Monday thru Saturday, 8 am to 5 pm)
call the office to arrange the disposal and fee.
(There is no guarantee that the items will be approved for disposal
depending on how large the items are,
how full the dumpsters are and the availability empty dumpsters)
~
DO NOT PUT CARDBOARD IN THE HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE DUMPSTER.
Flatten the cardboard and place it in the Cardboard Recycle Container.
~
DO NOT PUT GARBAGE IN THE ALUMINUM CAN RECYCLE BIN
(The Aluminum Cans are donated to several charities throughout Mason County)
 
 As a reminder, there is a fine associated with dumping non-conforming garbage without paying for the items.

PLEASE HELP KEEP YOUR GARBAGE COSTS DOWN.
 
We will install surveillance cameras to help with this problem.
