One man is dead and another is injured after they were attacked by a cougar Saturday while mountain biking in Washington State, police said.

King County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Ryan Abbott said the pair, whose identities haven’t been released, were attacked while they were going for a mountain bike ride in North Bend,  east of Seattle.

It is not clear if the victims were biking together or separately.

The article goes on to state the following:

Police said that one victim, in his late 40s, was transported to a hospital with unspecified injuries. The second victim was found dead and, according to Abbott, had not been removed from the scene.

Michael Crowe, a local reporter, tweeted updates on the situation, and said Fish and Wildlife officials announced they have found the cougar and shot it. He said they’re fairly certain it’s the same animal, but “DNA will be used to confirm.”
