Suburbs Riled By Mountain Lion Reports
Over the last few weeks, people in the suburbs of Fairfield County, Conn., have been reporting sightings of a mountain lion roaming the woods. Then a mountain lion was hit by a car on a highway and state officials said the large cat, which has been declared extinct in the East, must have been someone's pet. But now more reports of mountain lion sightings are coming in from the wealthy town of Greenwich, and officials are considering the possibility that there may be a second mountain lion loose in the 'burbs.
