A young girl who was hiking with her family in the Kananaskis area was attacked on the trail by a cougar. The father scared the cougar off, and the girl suffered minor injuries, scratches and puncture wounds.
Conservation officers tracked the cougar and killed it. It was under 2 years old and was litter mates with a young cougar that was killed last month after attacking hikers near Canmore. Conservation officers believe the young cougars mother died early or left them on their own before teaching them how to survive in the wild. The cougars would attack anything that moved.
