They're coming right for us!

Milwaukee news has been going on about cougar sightings, like this one from about a month ago... Lists of local cougar-related news are here and here.

From that article: "According to the DNR, the last known wild cougars in Wisconsin disappeared in the early 20th century."

Today (via Guy Kawasaki on Twitter), a 150lb cougar was shot and killed just south of here, in Chicago.

From the Gospel of Wikipedia:

... large male territories of ...58 to 386 sq mi...

Male ranges may include or overlap with those of females but, at least where studied, not with those of other males...

Cougar is also known as puma, mountain lion, or panther...

I wonder how likely it is that it's the same one...

My thoughts went, "Why did they kill it? Chicago cops should have tranquilizers", which triggers the segue to:
Peppers: She's a beauty, ain't she?
Frank: Yeah, what kind of gun is this?
Peppers: It's a tranquilizer gun. If any of these little f***ers decide to freak out on the kids, I get to take them down. Ain't that right?
Peppers: [yank's on the mule's reigns]
Peppers: Oh, what? That's what I thought. Shut up.
[Frank cocks the gun]
Peppers: Hey, hey. Careful with that. That's the most powerful tranq gun on the market. Got her in Mexico.
Frank: Cool.
Peppers: Yeah, it is cool. They say it can puncture the skin of a rhino from...
Frank: [Frank shoots himself in the neck with the dart]
Peppers: YES! That's awesome!
Frank: What?
Peppers: You just took one in the jugular, man.
Frank: What? I did.
[feeling his neck]
Peppers: YES!
Frank: Oh my god. Is this bad? Is this bad?
Peppers: You better pull that s**t out man. That s**t is not cool.
Frank: Wait. What? Pull what out?
Peppers: You got a f***ing dart in your neck man.
Frank: [laughing] You're... you're crazy man. I like you, but you're crazy.
