    Cougar Incident Reported in Roscoe Village

    Police shot and killed a cougar on the North Side Monday night.

    The animal was shot about 5:30 p.m. in the alley behind the 3400 block of North Hamilton Avenue, according to a Belmont District officer.

    The officer confirmed an officer fatally shot the large cat.

    “Its [cougar] dead,” the officer said.

    The cougar possibly is the same animal spotted in several northern suburbs in the past month.

    According to Wilmette police, an animal believed to be a cougar was spotted in the 300 block of 3rd Street near the CTA’s Linden station on Sunday, April 13.

    Officers searched the area, but were unable to locate the animal.

    The reports are similar to recent possible cougar sightings in North Chicago, where paw prints were found.

    North Chicago police have teamed with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and Lake County Forest Preserve officers to track and apprehend the animal.

    Police remind residents not to approach the animal and immediately call 911.

    Wonder what they shot it with.

    Just like the police always shooting my cougars. That cougar was my pet, he was sweet and gentle. They should have called me first or used pepper spray or tasers.

    I know your joking but pepper spray would make the animal run away which is exactly what should of been done in the other thread. In this situation they needed to either put the animal down (easy way), or catch the animal and relocate it to an area where it cannot find a human settlement. Once a wild animal such as a cougar becomes aclimated to people it is no longer afraid of them. This makes them very danagerous. Not the cougars fault of course, just unfortunate.
