I saw this story on the local news last night and there was no mention of a pen being used. Stated she fought off the cougar with a stick.
And as an update, the condition of the gentleman has worsened within the last few days because of infection that has set in from what they believe is the germs from the cougars claws.

from what I've just read on a norwegian newspaper's homepage (vg.no), Nell used a large wooden stick, 4"/10cm across to chase away the cougar. she tried the pen, though, when Jim told her to stick it into the cougars eye, but it got bent and the idea failed. she kept hitting the cougar with he stick until the cougar let go if Jim and stared at Nell, who waved with the stick and screamed until the cougar fled with a bloody nose. at least that's what VG says. the story is a bit overtold without the stick...
