Feral Chicago

After a two year-old male cougar was cornered—always a smart move—and sadly shot to death by police in Chicago two days ago, it seems cougar-mania has descended upon us, as seen in the following report of another large cat allegedly spotted near Skokie, Illinois.

As for the slain puma, although local wildlife experts doubt it, I’d wager it belonged to some imbecile who kept it as a pet, and either escaped or was turned loose when it became unmanageable.

However, wild cougars have been increasingly confirmed as living in the Midwest, including Wisconsin and southern Illinois.

Down kitty.
