Deputies say a small dog was carried off by a cougar near Sublimity early Tuesday.

The incident occurred at about 4:30 a.m. The dog's owner, Mark Jensen, told the Marion County Sheriff's Office that the cougar carried off his dog, an 8-year-old Yorkie named Bub, from his front porch. The cougar is described as having brown and white markings and weighing between 35 to 50 pounds.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office is working with Oregon State Police and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to determine what should be done regarding the cat.
