Mountain lion killed under La Pine deck BEND (AP) — A moun- tain lion that authorities say recently attacked two dogs and killed a pet cat in La Pine has been shot and killed. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office says depu- ties shot the animal Saturday morning after a homeowner called to report the cougar was under the house’s deck. Officials say deputies found the cougar under the deck and killed it because of the danger it posed to the community. The home where the cou- gar was shot is less than a quarter mile from a children’s daycare. The Lady Outlaws had a hard week on the hardwood, which started with a 44-24 loss to the Lions at Cottage Grove on Tuesday, January 17. Three days later, they were buried by the Bulldogs in a 44-16 loss. In Tuesday’s action, Sisters lost by 20 on the road in their game against the Lions. The Lions used their height advantage against the Outlaws, and did a good job getting the ball through the hoop. Sisters trailed by eight at the half, and then the Lions doubled up on the Outlaws in the second half and outscored them 25-12. The Outlaws shot 19 per- cent from the field, and just 20 percent from the stripe, while the Lions shot 35 per- cent from the field. Despite the fact the Outlaws lost, Coach Von Stein told The Nugget he felt the girls played extremely well and are turning the cor- ner as a team.

Amanda Smith was the Outlaws’ leading scorer with 10 points and six boards. Gracie Sundstrom tallied six points. “The girls are really play- ing together as a team, and I’m proud of their play,” said Von Stein. “We just need to get the ball in the hoop, and that’s a point of emphasis at our practices.” Three days later, the Bulldogs, who are ranked No. 3 in the state, took control of the game from the start and sailed to an easy victory. Von Stein told The Nugget that the Lady Outlaws were shell-shocked, and strug- gled offensively against the Bulldogs’ tough defense. Sisters was to play at Junction City on Tuesday, January 24. On Friday, January 27, the Outlaws will play at home against Elmira. Tip-off is set for 7:15 p.m. GET WARM AND SAVE MONEY!
