(MOUNT HOOD NAT’L FOREST, ORE.) – Cougar attacks on hikers are so rare, your chances are better of dying from a lightning strike than dying by cougar according to wildlife experts. But such attacks on humans, often fatal, do happen.

Two months ago in July, a cougar attacked and killed a mountain biker near North Bend here in Washington state.

Now in Oregon, authorities say a missing Gresham woman who was found dead off a hiking trail near Mount Hood on Monday was likely killed by a cougar just days before discovery of her body.

The death of 55-year old Diana Bober has thus become that state’s first confirmed fatal wild cougar attack. An autopsy discovered that the wounds found on Bober’s body were caused by a large animal.

To confirm it was a cougar, and not another large animal such a bear, DNA samples are being sent to the Oregon Fish & Wildlife Forensics Lab in Ashland for analysis.

According to The Oregonian newspaper ,Bober was reported missing by out-of-state relatives on Friday after not hearing from her since August 29th.

Her family described her as an avid hiker. Ms.Bober's car was found Saturday at the Zigzag Ranger Station, about 17 miles east of Sandy. Her body was discovered by search and rescue crews two days later about two miles from the ranger station in the Mount Hood National Forest just off a trail.

That trail has been closed to the public as a precaution. According to the newspaper report, Bober appeared to have fought the animal that attacked her.
