It was a scream that prompted Wayne Stafford to look outside Saturday morning.
It was then, he said, that he spotted a cougar.
In his shop off Dutch Chapel Road, Stafford yelled for his wife and grandson.
“We watched it for 15 minutes or more,” he said. “At one point, he was looking almost directly at us...”
The animal, Stafford said, stood only 300 feet from his shop.
A yellowish brown color, Stafford said the animal was two feet tall and three feet long with a long tail.
