Cougar sighted by South Umpqua River

I was driving along FSR 28 about a mile above Umpqua Falls and saw a cougar cross the road. He changed his mind and crossed again. I stopped my car where he entered the brush and saw him again. He wasn't running just hiding, so I grabbed a video camera. He was hiding and I couldn't see him at all so I just pointed the camera, zoomed in and crossed my fingers. I didn't know until I got home and enlarged it that I had captured him on video. You can see his face in the lower middle of the screen.
