Cougar Hangs Out at Lewiston Safeway
The mountain lion was taking a break in the bushes outside the Lewiston Safeway, calmly watching what the grocers were doing. The officers had been getting reports of cougar activity, but nothing inside the business district. Officers were not too concerned by the calm cat, but later tranqulized him to safely move him outside the city, according to KLEWTV.com.
"It is pretty calm, he's just kind of hanging out," said Sgt. Ted Piche, with LPD. "It seems to be hot and tired. It sleeps a little bit and is just paying attention to what everybody else is doing."
