RE: Seattle runners. Cougar attack (fatality) in Washington: Same trail as the course used for downhill marathons?
Good question. I was wondering the same thing when i read about it this morning.
I pulled up a few maps and it appears that the attack occurred about 5 miles away from the course, on the latter portion of the race course.
Link to where the attack occurred:
As i recall, that would put the attack on the opposite side of I-90, a major interstate highway. That's a fair amount of distance away, but as i recall from the article, cougars cover on average a 36 square mile territory, so it would still be within its roaming area.
Very sad.
The story is scary, you can read it here:
