Deb Dohrman, co-owner of Rimrock Grocery, sent this picture of elk hunter Wayne Jewell of Stanwood’s big kill last Friday. He stopped to rest between two fallen logs, with his back to a tree, rifle at the ready for elk. But this 7-foot, 200-pound cougar showed up instead, 15 feet away. Jewell was startled but reacted quickly to dispose of the threat. Dohrman is a former Sunnyside resident.
