One man was killed and another seriously injured when they encountered a cougar Saturday while mountain biking in Washington state, officials said. Authorities said the two men were on a morning bike ride in the foothills near North Bend when the attack occurred. The town is about 30 miles east of Seattle. The mountain lion ran into the woods, after which officers with the Washington Department of Fish and Game later tracked it down, shot and killed it, said Capt. Alan Myers of the state’s Fish and Wildlife police. The 31-year-old survivor was taken to a hospital in Seattle. He was initially listed in serious condition but was alert and talking; his condition was later upgraded to satisfactory, the Seattle Times reported.
