This is a list of known or suspected fatal cougar attacks that occurred in North America by decade in chronological order. The cougar is also commonly known as mountain lionpumamountain catcatamountor panther. The sub-population in Florida is known as the Florida panther. A total of attacks, 27 of which are fatal,  have been documented in North America in the past years. Fatal cougar attacks are extremely rare and occur much less frequently than fatal snake bitesfatal lightning strikes, or fatal bee stings. The majority of the child victims listed here were not accompanied by adults.
