For better or for worse... mountain lions have been finding their way into the Omaha metro... one was tranquilized and placed in the zoo... another was struck by a car on a highway. There are BIG cats... six feet long in the former instance. I don't know if this means that the population is expanding to the northwest, resulting in their migrating down by way of creek valleys (where they're usually sighted)... perhaps their food supply is diminishing? dunno.
