Family Finds A Cougar In Their Backyard


In Gurnee, Illinois,Marilynn Sullivan took a video at her home in which it appears a cougar was caught roaming around in her backyard. She admitted that she isn't entirely sure what it is, but an expert told her she may be right about it being a cougar.Bill Zeiglerat the Brookfield Zoo said the animal is way too big to be a bobcat. This wouldn't be the first time a large cat was spotted in the suburbs. A little more than two years ago, a cougar sighting in a residential area caused a stir and warnings to the public. Sullivan said she found scratches and blood on her fence and hopes whatever it is can be found. She added, "I was immediately frightened for my dogs and any animals or children in my neighborhood." But she also said, "I don't want the animal killed. I would love for it to be saved and be brought to a safe environment for the animal."
