We are used to bears, deer and foxes in town and I know we have wolves and coyotes in the rural areas around us. We don't see them in town though. The cougar is very unusual but they have been showing up in towns in Wisconsin from time to time in recent months.
I have a niece who teaches in Colorado. She grew up in the greater Detroit area. She tells us elk regularly come to the playground at the elementary school where she works. One day one of her third graders wore a little too much elk poo in from recess. Cleaning that off a kid isn't something she'd ever encountered before. LOL 24 days ago
