Noted. Thanks so much, Cher. I'm with Cheryl, I'd love to be able to see a cougar up close but I'm in the middle of a huge city so that won't happen. I'm so glad that they tranqulized and released the cougar rather than shooting to kill.

I bet the men were just as nervous as the cougar was. THEY DID NOT KILL HIM! YEA!!!!

WE are invading THEIR territory, so it's not surprising this happens.

THANK YOU for tranquilizing the cougar and releasing it, instead of knee jerk shotgun approach!

It's good to know the cougar was tranquilized and re-located. Too many times wild animals are short when they could have been removed like this example.
