WDFW says stray cougar was bloated, starving

Photo contributed by Humrich family
The male adult cougar shot and killed after it killed Kate Humrich’s dog was not healthy but bloated and starving, an official with the state department of fish and wildlife said in an interview.
Despite appearances, a necropsy indicated that the cougar killed near Brender Canyon was starving when he died.

The animal, a male adult about six years old died the day after he killed a Cashmere family's pet. Jerry Humrich found his wife's dog's carcass, and spotted the cougar about 10 feet away. Humrich shot him instantly.

Department of Fish and Wildlife Sgt. Dan Klump said the WDFW officer on the scene of the kill saw the cougar and it looked healthy at first, but time had passed since the cougar had died and it had become bloated, making it look fatter than it was when it was alive.

Busy summer of trips and tiaras for Cashmere grad
You know you've had quite the summer when moving from Cashmere to southern California to start college ends up being only the third-coolest thing you did.

Such is the life of one Sarah Fitzpatrick, 18, former Cashmere student who will start attending Biola University, just outside of Anaheim this fall.

But what she will remember about the warm months of 2014 is not the time she spent packing boxes or looking for the right dorm room, but the time she spent in Europe as a goodwill ambassador with other American youths, or the time she spent competing in the National American Miss Washington pageant.

Midnight practice kicks off soccer season
Cashmere's girls soccer team opened its 2014 season with something common on college campuses, but a bit of a rarity on high school ones.

Midnight Madness, a late-night, early-morning celebration of the start of a new season has become a tradition for the Cashmere team, which has done it for seven years.

This year, players began gathering outside Cashmere Soccer Field around 11:30 p.m Aug. 24. Despite the late hour and the fact that school would start in three days, nobody dragged feet. Music, singing and laughter filled the air as more players turned up.

Cougar, not coyote, killed after it kills couple's dog
What Kate Humrich first thought was a daring coyote, turned out to be a cougar. And what looked like a stealthy catch for the feline, it turned out to be its last meal.

Humrich, a resident of Brender Canyon for 22 years is mourning the loss of her dog, Beanie, at the paws of a cougar. But the animal lover inside her is also mourning the loss of the cougar, killed after her husband went out to look for the dog's body and instead found both dead dog and, 15 feet away, live cougar.

It's critical to make eye exams part of your back-to-school routine
(BPT) - Reading the computer, chalkboard and books are critical elements of getting an education that can lead students to reaching their full potential and making their goals and dreams come true.

Surprisingly, vision disability is the single most prevalent disabling condition among children.

In fact, one in four students in kindergarten through sixth grade has an undetected vision problem that can interfere with their ability to read and learn, according to the American Optometric Association.

While scheduling your children's doctor and dentist visits before they head back to school this year, it's important to remember that an eye exam is just as important. The ability to see clearly and comfortably can directly impact children's performance both in and out of the classroom.
