Police in North Chicago are on the lookout for what Mayor Leon Rockingham described Saturday as a "very big cat" that authorities believe could be a wild cougar.
A cougar ran loose in Chicago on Monday for the first time since the city's founding in the 19th Century. But by day's end, the animal lay dead in a back alley on the North Side, shot by police who said they feared it was turning to attack.

Poor kitty. Maybe it's for the best. After all, if I had a choice of living my life in Chicago or being shot, bring on the firing squad.
Seriously, though, animal sightings and attacks do seem to be on the increase. And there is evidence that animal behavior is linked to natural disasters... I wonder...
Just food for thought. (And a chance to get in a shot at Chicago.)
