Cougars on the West Side!

OK, it was just one, and it wasn't the sexy kind. And cougars really aren't strangers to this area. But it did lead to some excitement today.
SAN ANTONIO -- A San Antonio police spokeswoman said the adult wild cougar that escaped from the Wild Animal Orphanage on the city's far Northwest Side Friday morning has been located.

Spokeswoman Sandy Gutierrez said the around 3 p.m., "Sarah," the cougar, was found in a wooded area near the intersection of Leslie Road and Loop 1604.


Jamie Cryer, of the Wild Animal Orphanage, said he and orphanage staff walked up on Sarah in a dry creekbed behind the property.

He said after the fired the tranquilizer dart, they walked her back on a stretcher and she was checked out by a veterinarian, who said she was fine.

Bonus strangeness: The name "Sarah" given to such a creature. I would have called it "Killer".

You have to admit, Cougars on the West Side would make a good name for a local reality TV series.
