Today's update from PSWOur feline visitor continues to occupy the area north of the Pine Street Woods access road. Please observe trail closures (Pine Cone, Owl, Crooked Tree, & Mushroom). Don't call out "Here kitty kitty" and keep dogs leashed. You may wonder why we decided to allow visitors on the trails and Camp Kaniksu to proceed as planned when there is a known predator on site. Tigger is pretty busy working on a tasty project right now. We are not really concerned that he will drop what he's doing to eat us or our children. Actually, we are more concerned with giving him adequate space so that he can finish his dinner and move on. We are anxious to open the trails again. Of course, Pine Street Woods always has wild animals within the park. These creatures co-exist with visitors pretty well (except when the moose walk on the freshly groomed cross country trails in winter. That really bugs us). The point is this: we want you to enjoy the trails and the beauty of nature. We want nature to do its thing without us getting in the way. We want every creature on the trails and off to feel safe.

Update on PSW trail closure: The trails above the parking lot (Pine Cone, Owl, Crooked Tree, and Mushroom) remain closed. KLT staff returned to the lion's kill this morning to find the cat had returned in the night and eaten more of the deer, but there is plenty of snacking left to do. Allowing recreation to carry on in the immediate vicinity of a mountain lion kill is reckless and risks human/dog/predator conflicts that put the safety of all at risk. We will monitor the site throughout the week and when there is no further evidence of the cat returning to the area the trails will be reopened! For now feel free to enjoy the miles of trail below the PSW parking lot, in VTT, and throughout Sherwood Forest while we give this wild predator the space it needs. (Note this pic was taken yesterday morning just moments before the cat was seen near the kill as KLT staff prepared to move it off the trail into the woods. As of this morning even more of the animal had been eaten). ... See MoreSee Less

⚠ TRAIL CLOSURE ⚠Please avoid all the wide and narrow trails ABOVE the Pine Street Woods parking lot. There is a confirmed mountain lion sighting as of 15 minutes ago. Yesterday a deer kill was reported and a lion was suspected based on evidence of tooth marks in the deer's neck. This morning staff went to the carcass to move it off the trail and the lion was still on site, stalking the carcass from close by. This is within yards of the top of Crooked Tree, Pine Street Woods most trafficked trail.For this reason @kaniksult has decided to close all the trails above the parking lot until the carcass is consumed and there is no more evidence of the lion in the vicinity.Please do not let dogs wander off up the hill. If your dog approaches this carcass there's a reasonable chance your dog will be the lion's next victim. ... See MoreSee Less
