LINK Cougar that was kept as illegal pet removed from NYC home

NEW YORK ✈ — An 80-pound cougar was removed from a New York City apartment where she was being kept illegally as a pet, animal welfare officials said Monday.

The owner of the 11-month-old female cougar surrendered the animal on Thursday, Kelly Donithan, director of animal disaster response for the Humane Society of the United States, said in a news release.

The cougar, nicknamed Sasha, spent the weekend at the Bronx Zoo receiving veterinary care and is now headed to the Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in Arkansas, officials said.

She's gorgeous. I'm glad they took her to a reserve instead of leaving her at the zoo.

Yeah, gotta love a happy ending for her.

Bet the neighbors didn't know about the cougar and are glad to hear it's now gone.

Oh a cougar!
I was thinking about another kind of cougar.

Me too! It would have been a much more intriguing story for sure. I hadn't realized it would be illegal.

Careful! Your mind is showing! 😉

Yes, I can see it. The release of 40 to60 year old women who prey on young men into the wild. That would be one weird story, if that was so.
