COUGAR ATTACK

Around 7 pm tonight, I heard the ambulance go by, then a few minutes later I got a phone call to tell me that a friend had been attacked by a cougar.....he parked in his driveway, opened the car door, put one leg out and a cougar jumped out of the bushes and attacked him......he beat it over the head with his cane and got the door closed again and phoned the mounties........My first reaction was horror of course, but then I laughed till the tears rolled.......You would have to know the guy......just the picture in my head of him bopping a cougar over the head with his cane......He got away with a few scratches.....lucky guy.

I had been walking in the woods just a couple of hours earlier, a 1/4 mile from the attack.....Yeatch!!!!.....Wildlife Services will be on the island hunting it first thing tomorrow........There is something wrong with a cougar who attacks a Human......Last time a cougar came even close, was 30 years ago.A man heard his dog making strange crying sounds outside. He grabbed a flashlight and opened the door to see a cougar with his dog's head in it's mouth......the cougar immediately let go and took off.

The Wildlife guys were very familiar with it.....they had been tracking him for years. Some people had put out illegal bear traps in their orchards to catch raccoons. The young cougar got caught in one and damaged his leg so he couldn't hunt. Another, older cougar hunted with him for 6 months. Cougars are loners and never hunt together, so this was a very rare partnership. When the injured cougar's foot healed, he was on his own again, but his foot didn't heal properly.

The Wildlife guys could tell by his tracks....the foot was deformed. So, apparently he lost the ability to feed himself and so it was extreme hunger that forced him to hunt easy prey.......it was his undoing however and he was culled.

DEMENTIA VILLAGE

This is being built about 30 miles from here in a beautiful river valley......what a great idea.......

"The construction of a new care home and creation of campus of care will allow the local health-care system to provide care that is flexible and responsive for those living with dementia and complex health issues,”

The dementia village is being modelled after successful facilities in the Netherlands. It represents a shift in care that supports a “person-centric” model.

"Creating a community that is a hub of a activity that focuses putting the needs of the person at the forefront won’t only benefit the senior, but also their family,"

Plans include providing facilities that both seniors and their families can enjoy, including a grocery store, music room, and pub in the village.

The announcement supports a large-scale provincial plan, which aims to better support B.C’s ageing population, and reduce added stress on emergency services and hospitals.

“This is the right conversation to be having,” Stewart says. “When it comes to dementia, age is the biggest risk factor, so we really need to be prepared to provide good quality, inclusive care.”
