We humans intuitively tend to think that random processes cause phenomena to occur at a steady rate.  Then when those random events randomly cluster in time, it fools us into thinking that something has changed.

"Hunters target mountain lions for trophies, so they tend to pursue large, mature males. But large, mature male mountain lions are accomplished hunters who have developed a healthy aversion to humans. By removing those lions from the population, Oregon is allowing inexperienced juveniles to replace them. Those juveniles are not yet good hunters so may turn to people and their pets for an easy meal, and they may not have an ingrained aversion to places we live and recreate."

This attack, like all the others, was by a 160 lb. - most likely starving - juvenile.
