August 19, 1928: "What Cascade forest officials described as iron nerve was exhibited by Mrs. E.E. Kilpatrick, wife of the lookout on Logger Butte, above Oakridge. Friday night when she stopped the approach of a large cougar with a bullet sent through the animal's heart. Just before dusk Mrs. Kilpatrick started down the trail for water, which is carried for a distance of about a quarter of a mile to the lookout house on the butte. She carried a .22 calibre rifle and a water bag. Suddenly a form leaped into the path ahead of her, and she discerned the large cougar coming toward her. Dropping her water bag, Mrs. Kilpatrick fell to one knee, sighted her gun at the animal's shoulder, and fired. The bullet passed through the cougar's heart, and it died almost instantly. She was about 50 feet away when she fired. Mrs. Kilpatrick went on for her water and returned to the lookout to tell her husband, who during the school years is principal of the Pleasant Hill high school, of her adventure. When measured, the cougar, a female, was found to be eight feet, six inches long. The following day a sheep man shot a cub cougar in that district, and it is believed Mrs. Kilpatrick killed the cub's mother." (Morning Register)
