An aggressive cougar recently followed two men near Hoquiam.
Puget Sound salmon manager Steve Thiesfeld said the two were completing a habitat survey on the Little Hoquiam River when they spotted the cougar, ears back and hissing.
They faced the animal, waved their arms and inched toward the road for about 20 minutes. Thiesfeld told KBKW the cat came within striking distance several times.
