A 4-year-old boy suffered serious injuries to his head, neck and arms after being attacked by a cougar at Lake Cowichan Friday afternoon.
The attack occurred around 3:30 p.m. in the Point Ideal subdivision right near the centre of town down by the marina.
The boy’s condition is reported as non-life threatening.
Conservation officers flooded the area and located and shot two small cougars around 6 p.m and were searching the area for a third feline.
More to come.
