BANFF, Alta. - Parks Canada officials are advising people in Banff to be on alert after a man told them he fought off an attacking cougar with his skateboard.
Bill Hunt, the resource conservation manager for the Banff field unit, said the man was attacked Thursday and originally reported the incident anonymously.
But Hunt said officials tracked him down to get more information in order to find the cougar.
