Question about possible cougar sighting in Illinois.

If this or any other cougars get spotted again, why will it most likely be shot & killed? How many cougars have already been killed here? Like 3, 4?

Why can't we just (supervise our pets and then) turn a blind eye to it? I'm guessing there are probably even more cougars running around than we even know about. They are just doing their thing and trying to live. Why do we have to kill them?

Maryland R&B singer Brent Faiyaz spins gold all on his own on Sonder Son

    Maryland R&B singer Brent Faiyaz spins gold all on his own on Sonder Son
    Goldlink's runaway 2017 hit "Crew" would be nothing without the buttery-smooth vocal hook from Brent Faiyaz. Raised in Columbia, a Maryland suburb that rests on an axis between Baltimore and D.C., the 22-year-old tried his hand at being an MC before he received a Twitter DM from a stranger advising him to stop rapping and focus his on other aspects of his music.

    VIDEO: Wicker Park Robbery Video Provides Another Learning Moment
    The latest North Side robbery alert from Chicago Police focuses on three incidents reported Friday in Wicker Park. But everyone can learn by watching surveillance video of one of the hold-ups. One of the best ways to train your gut instinct is to learn how street criminals operate. Around 12:45 p.m.
    http://www.cwbchicago.com
  • This is good advice, because most of us don't notice cars coming and going into alleys. They got a good look at the robber, he's probably a teen from one of the highschools, and I guess one of the teachers or principals will recognize him.

    LA underground punks No Age return from a five-year absence with a punishing new album for Drag City
    Five years can be a lifetime in the career of a postpunk band, but that's how long it's been since the LA duo No Age dropped a new record. Singer and guitarist Randy Randall and drummer Dean Spunt have finally broken their silence with the exuberant Snares Like a Haircut (Drag City), a maelstrom of fury and melody that sounds like it must be the product of more than two people.
