Cougar in Chicago!
Some of you may have come across this story earlier in the week, but I couldn't resist posting it.
It's hard to believe, but on Monday, a huge cougar was on the loose on the North Side of Chicago. Even now, no one's quite sure how it came to be in the second or third greatest city in the US (depending on which blog commentor you ask). According to National Geographic, it may have made a 1,000 mile journey from the Black Hills of South Dakota--or it could have been an abandoned pet. (Weirder things have been kept in New York apartments.)
Unfortunately, the story does not end happily for the cougar. But if you're up for it, you can read more here.
