I got in the car drove to the end of the circle and there were TONS of cop cars at my friend NaTasha's house. When I pulled out of the neighborhood I realized there were cop cars at every entrance of the neighborhood too. I started to really worry about it. When I finally got ahold of NaTasha she told me there was a cougar in her back yard! That explains why those people thought I was crazy for letting my kids play outside. I had NO IDEA!
When I was able to go back home I noticed all these helicopters hovering over my neighborhood and cop cars and news cars all over. When I drove by her house again she was outside. I HAD to stop to find out what had happened. Apparently they shot it with a tranquilizing gun in her back yard and it jumped the fence to the yard behind her. They were able to catch it and it will be taken back to the mountains.
While standing there talking to her the news guys showed up. Here she is being interviewed in her work out clothes. (Don't worry Tash, you still look great!)

What an interesting morning! I am still a little worried to let the kids go out and play though. Just incase this cougar had a friend not too far behind.
