The video report says that the cougar was "eventually taken away," but the print version verifies that "officers with the Department of Fish and Game were forced to shoot and kill the animal. They had hoped to return it to the wild."
Glad they caught the kid. I also appreciate that they actually acknowledged the suffering of the cats:
"The cruelty of these crimes were horrific for the animal victims, but there were many human victims as well," Mayor Paul Vrooman said.
"Let's not forget the children and the families who found their pets mutilated. These awful scenes inflicted a human toll."
