Thank you poster, this is not natural behaviour for a cougar to be seen by humans, especially during daylight hours, they are extremely wary animals . I have only seen one in the 35 years I have lived on Mount Begbie Road, and that was on the highway at night. A lot of people are out berry picking right now, and this is good information. Having literally run into bears on several occasions, I appreciate any heads up. Maybe you city folk should stop worrying about thieves, muggers, etc,. as they are "natural" in the cities.
