I used robertcanfield.com as my campaign website. Amazingly, I hadn't updated it since November. Anyway, I've updated it with some basic information. Nothing fancy, I really just wanted to add a lot of links to this blog.
I got a fax from Troutdale Police Chief Nelson today. The elusive Troutdale cougar has been sighted several times in Sunrise Park.
Chief Nelson says that ODFW basically says shoot the beast, because tranquilizers won't work- you don't know what the cat will do during the 8 minutes it takes for the tranquilizer to work.
I'm rooting for the cougar myself. In Canada, people have a more tolerant attitude toward wild animals in urban areas. They have a live and let live way of thinking about it. Everyone is aware of the potential danger and adjusts their activities accordingly. After all, the animals live here too.
