Wild Animals in the City

You see the stories every now and then: A wild animal finds its way into an urban area, scaring the beejezus out of unsuspecting city folk (most of who consider the time a red squirrel [which are, admittedly, ornery critters] leapt out near them from a low-lying pine branch as their most exciting animal encounter), becoming the main topic on all the local news channels and rallying the populace to take up arms in defense of their labradoodles. The best result for the animal is that it is captured by authorities and released back into the wild. Sadly, the tales sometimes end like this Chicago Tribune story of a Chicago-roaming cougar. What’s your wild encounter story?
