Cougar captured in Willmar


WILLMAR, Minn.— A cougar is reported doing fine on Wednesday, a day after being caught near a Willmar elementary school.


Veterinarian Gregg Laurence said the big cat is calm for the most part, and the clinic is trying to find more comfortable accommodations for her.


Laurence says the cougar is relatively tame and a little thin, and she wore no collar or tags.


Officials haven't determined yet if the cougar is wild or someone's pet, or what to do with her.


For the cats,
