Cougar sighting forces Hayhurst School to lock down

Southwest Portland’s Hayhurst School was locked down for nearly an hour Wednesday morning after a neighbor reported seeing a large cougar walking through Pendleton Park near Southwest 55th Drive.

Portland police were unable to find the cougar during a search of the area. The school on Southwest Iowa Street was released from lockdown about 45 minutes later.

A neighbor called police at about 8:45 a.m. April 30, saying the cougar was in the park. The school was locked down as a precaution.
