In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying
"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Cougars in the Park
Local news reports a cougar sighted near Spencer's Butte park, a popular hiking area (and, local lore goes, somewhat of a UFO hot spot) -- there are rattlesnakes up there, and the occasional cougar report. I can see the Butte if I walk to the corner of my street... not far from me at all. With video and photo.
