TopicCougar population on the Island is rising
Experts say up to 600 animals roaming the area
Darrell Bellaart, Daily News
Published: Saturday, May 12, 2012
The cougar population on Vancouver Island is up by about 50% from a decade ago, mirroring a rising Island deer population.
A Nanaimo wildlife technician said the cougar population could be as high as 600, up from a maximum of 400 in 2001.
A report of a cougar seen guarding over a deer carcass in an Extension yard this week led to a warning from school officials for parents to remind school children to use extra caution while walking in the neighbourhood.
Other sightings have come from all corners of the city. It's not unusual to see more cougar activity in the spring, but the predators' populations do naturally rise with populations of its natural prey.
Right now, Island deer herds are increasing.
"I believe it's on the a bit of an upswing because of the deer on Vancouver Island," said conservation officer Stuart Bates.
"Our number of cats, the last estimate we did was in 2010, it's 400 to 600 animals,," said Jerry MacDermott, who has studied the wild cats for about a decade on the Island.
In 2001, it was 300 to 400. Cougars are elusive and difficult to track, especially the males.
"We have a satellite tom (cat) that travels from Mount Benson to Port Alberni, and typically a male will overlap with four or five females," MacDermott said.
It's easier to track deer within 13 geographic areas.
"We can't survey every portion of the Island but within those we can do our inventories."
As deer populations rise, more cougars survive. That can create trouble for young, inexperienced cats when older cats push them out of their territory, closer to urban areas and healthy deer.
In one highly publicized example years ago, a cougar was tranquillized and captured in the Empress Hotel parkade in Victoria.
Such circumstances are rare, but they are often dangerous situations.
"You might have 10 cats on the outskirts of town and you wouldn't know it but you might have a cougar emaciated that could take a risk to attack a pet or there have been incidents where cougars have been spotted in all kinds of places, like the Empress, or on a school property," MacDermott said.
Longer-term, he predicts the cougar population will stabilize along with deer herd numbers.

Es gibt immer wieder Meldungen ueber Cougarsichtungen und -Vorfaelle in letzter Zeit.
August 16, 2012The cougar that attacked a seven-year-old Port Alberni boy Wednesday night has been killed.
BC Conservation officers tracked the animal Thursday morning then shot and killed it. “They believe this was the animal that attacked the boy,” RCMP Watch Commander Const. Tracey Corner said.
RCMP responded to a call of a cougar attack at the Taylor Flats section of Sproat Lake on Wednesday night.
There, police found a seven-year-old boy who was attacked and mauled by a cougar before his father managed to chase the animal away.
The boy suffered significant injuries to his head and neck and was transported by BC Ambulance to West Coast General Hospital where he remains.
The boy and his family had been camping in the area when the cougar attacked.
The incident is the second in a year on the West Coast involving a cougar attack.

In letzter Zeit wird immer oefter ueber Cougar-Vorfaelle
in den Medien berichtet auf Vancouver Island (ebenso ueber Wolfssichtungen).
24. August 2012Two days ago Central Saanich Police and Conservation Officers investigated several livestock killings that are believed to be the result of a cougar attack. Several sheep and goats in the Martindale Valley were killed, and in the last 24 hours police say there have been several sightings of a cougar in Central Saanich.
Due to what appears to be an increase in activity, police are advising residents to be more aware, especially at night.
On Thursday night, at about 7 p.m., a resident from Garden Gate Drive in Brentwood Bay reported a cougar in his backyard. Then, at about 8:30 a.m. Friday morning, a resident of Haldon Road in Saanichton reported seeing a cougar in the area.

Keine Woche vergeht hier, daß nicht über Cougar-Sichtungen und -Vorfälle berichtet wird.
Swimming Cougar. Heute sah ich die üblichen Kanada-Kalender 2013. Ich habe seit Jahren den Eindruck,
die werden auf zehn Jahre mit denselben Fotos im voraus gedruckt. Ein Cougar war (dieses Jahr) nie drauf.
Es wäre der wärmste September seit 115 Jahren lt. Wetteraufzeichnungen.

ein Cougar abgebildet. Wie gesagt, die typischen Kanada-Kalender sind meist
sehr langweilig (für mich).
Sue Coleman (Künstlerin aus Vancouver Island) malt Cougars z.B.
"The Cougar"The cougar is not amongst the B.C. Tribes. It was the cougar that clawed the side of the whale (Humpback or Blue) causing great slits from the chin to the breast (still seen to this day). However, he is given more respect in Washington where a once powerful Medicine Man, Willapointe Tom, who lived in the base of Mt. Rainier, had the Cougar as his Totem.
B.C. woman, dog fend off cougar attack from couchHanik said cougars and wolves were pushing into the area, adding their numbers to the huge number of coyotes already plaguing the back country and eroding the deer population, forcing predators to look into more settled areas where deer have been thriving for years.
