Cougar Killed in Chicago

In breaking news, a 150 pound cougar was shot by police tonight inside the city limits of Chicago.  It was killed in an alley at 5:30 pm.

Best line from the Tribune: "the animal was not wearing a collar or an ID tag."

Best line from the Sun-Times: "...a cougar was spotted in the 300 block of 3rd Street near the CTA’s Linden station on Sunday."

Just a reminder, our municipal motto is Urbs In Horto - City in a Garden.

The beast is in the garden
and he's getting on the El.

Perhaps it's time to harden
the walls wherein I dwell.

ADDED - advice to my dogs:

puppies, if
you happen to sniff
the trail of a cat...
just leave it at that
