    I’m outraged that this is the first time that I have heard about this!!! We live not even a block from Pierce Parkway where the sightings were seen earlier this month. The field where the cat has been sighted is across 28th from our house and it’s been around for a month!! I have 3 kitties that go outside during the day. I would think that if the police department was “beating the bushes” in the field between 28th and Rite Aid, that someone would surely use their brains and MOW the fields as it would eliminate hiding places for this animal. These cougars roam and I sure hope that something is done to tranqualize it and relocate it this time, last time there was one near WalMart and the fire department turned a hose in it. What was that point!
