2 THE lETHBRIDGl HERALD Friday, July It. 1971 Cougar mauls boy CAMPBELL RIVER B.C. (CP) Ilunlcrs and dogs aro on the trail of n cougar wliich has attacked humans twice in six weeks near this Vancouver Island community. They (racked it lo a camp- site on Echo Lake, a milfi from here. The latest attack on a human was when the cougar jumped on eight. year old Robert Kelly of West Vancouver, camp- ing wilh his mother and broth- er at Miller camp site. It mauled him badly about the head and tried to carry luin into Ihc bush before his mother, Roberta, scared it off her screams. Six ago a cougar In- vaded the lake side camp of three fishermen, six miles from where the Kelly boy was attacked. It tried to drag one man from his sleeping bag and was scar- ed off after it Inflicted Injur- ies needing 40 stitches In the arm and 30 stitches in the scalp of its victim. George Taylor, head of the federal game branch said: "We believe It's the same animal. I don't want to call it a man-eater and scare every- body but it has obviously lost its fear of human ecent and will attack humans when it's hungry." Mr. Taylor said he believes il is a good sized haps over 100 pounds. He speculated the cat had probably been "around civili- zation" long enough to lose its natural fear of humans and had been driven to its first attacks by the severe winter driving away deer. He said the fisherman who was attacked described tho ani- mal as "medium size" (a fully grown cougar usually stands about three feet and weighs be- tween 115 and 150 pounds) and tracks bore out his description. In the olner Incident, Mrs. Kelly was swimming while her two sons, Robert and Charles, 10, were playing about 50 feet sway. Mr. Taylor said she told him the cat came out of the bush behind Robert, who was follow- ing his brother up a trail. "It appears the cat just slapped him down and jumped on he said. "The older brother shouted to him to be quiet lo play dead but the cougar started carrying him off into the bush. "Then the mother came up screaming at the cougar. It dropped the boy and made he said. Robert was taken lo hospital hi Campbell River and had surgery for scalp injuries. He said to be in good condi- tion and was to be transferred to a North Vancouver hospital later. MAULED BY COUGAR Eighl-yeor-old Robert Kelly was in good condition Thursday after being mauled by a cougar while camping near Campbell River on Vancou- ver Island. He underwent surgery for scalp injuries at Campbell River hospital, where he is shown above with his mother, Roberta Kelly, then was transferred to hos- pital In North Vancouver.

ANDERSON Mnyoy REYKJAVIK (AP) Bobby Fischer's chances of winning the world chess crown looked better and better today after So- viet champion Boris Spassky conceded the eighth game In 37 moves. The score now is 5-3 in F'-cher's favor, and he needs or.i.v points to clinch the title. Spassky needs another nine to retain it.

Barring a complete reversal of form, Fis- cher's lead is likely to in- crease." The ninth game is set for Sun- day. Thursday's game was Spas- sky's fourth loss in the series, while Fischer has lost only one game and forfeited one. Sixteen more games can be played in the match if neces- sary. A win counts one point and a draw half a point, so Fis- cher could take the crown by holding Spassky to 15 draws. But the Russian must win at least two and draw all the rest. Some experts said Spassky played like B child Thursday, and one, grandmaster Miguel Najdorf of Argentina, com- mented: "This is not champion- ship chess." Fischer's rooks pursued Spas- sky's king relentlessly. When the game ended after nearly four hours, the Russian's pawns were scattered hopelessly.
