Cougar Shot, Killed


Photos from the Sun Times and Tribune.

Coverage at the Tribune, Times, Channel 2 and Channel 5.

No word on protest marches and reverends shrieking about specie-ism on the part of the Police, though we expect the comments to be quite lively today.

One of the quoted individuals says the cat was untagged, leading to speculation this could have been an exotic pet. If not, and as evidenced by a booming coyote population, we might just be seeing a resurgence of medium sized predators returning to the area.

UPDATE: This quote is great:
  • "It concerns me that this many shots were fired with children present and in close proximity to children," said David Cerda, resident.
No word about how concerned he is that a 150 pound killing machine is running around loose in a neighborhood filled with children and pets, restricted only by 6 foot high fences.

If you read the comments following the Tribune article, you'd think the police shot a 5 year old boy with a water balloon. A lot of the comments were along the line of tranquilizer gun should have been used, police over reacted, cats were here first....etc..

I cannot fathom the logic of those who said this crazy shit. I appreciate wildlife, but when a big cat such as this comes into an urban area, it needs to be put down. Anyone who says the police fucked up should have been given a cargo net and told to snare it and hold it. Yeah...right.

Asshats!! Our guys did what needed to be done, plain and simple.

It was actually a mechanical cougar. It was used by the CPD north area gun team to draw out homeowners who illegally posess handguns w/in city limits. Police did the reverse sting from 0600 hours until 1800 hours after confiscating 30 handguns from law abiding citizens who attempted to protect the neighborhood. According to J-Fed, the sting will move further northwest throughout the week. After recieving ducttape and oil, the cougar will be back at work tomorrow.

Hey Scc, since the Sun Times always rips off from you I propose we steal one of their ideas. I say everyday we post a street word or phrase known to CPD and the people we deal with. My phrase for today is: THE TV JUDGE: definition: the judge at Central Bond Court who is shown to the defendants on their initial court date via a closed circuit monitor. Extra credit, WHOOPED: definition: when upon paying money to a dealer for illegal drugs are given a item which appears to be the drug asked for but, is in fact fake. Example: instead of getting a rock you get a lemonhead, a piece of drywall or soap thus you've been whooped. I know other people can come up with good ones.

And the asshole lawyer on the chn 7 news that started to bash the police. Because they missed the cougar after the officers fired their weapons. And almost struck children playing nearby? WTF! His name is Cerda likes to sue the police. The cougar should of eaten this asshat. I would adopt him/her.

Ps I hear j-fed came on scene with his new tahoe and strapped the cougar the the hood of his truck a la deer hunter. He is getting the cougar stuffed so he can pet the big kitty everyday.

And, of course, it's gonna be our fault (the Dept's) that we shot this cat. This was in the news story on ABC Ch 7's website...

"
Confirmed cougar sightings are rare in Illinois.
Meanwhile, there was other concern in the neighborhood about all the shots police fired during the chase.
"I would say there were probably three sets of shots, six shots each set," said Johnston.
"It concerns me that this many shots were fired with children present and in close proximity to children," said David Cerda, resident. "

It's all part of daley's master plan... he is going to flood the city with exotic species to 1. lure the olympics (take THAT madrid, we have cougars and coyotes! Silly! ) 2. have the police distract people by shooting cats while he bulldozes the children's museum overnight and 3. throws millions at a wildlife reserve built by walsh construction.... J-Fed couldn't be reached for comment- he's hiding in the bushes outside Dugan's looking for the next headliner...

1) Metra tracks are right there...
2) looked wild / not pet?

3) The supervisors on scene treated this like it was a person. why did they put up yellow and red interior perimeter tape and contact cards over every shell casing. has everyone lost their minds. its an animal. at first they wouldn't even let p.os go inside the "cime scene" to take a look; -like they would contaminate it.
4) I think our leadership is watching too much csi. I understand canvas the area for possible accidental victim from the shots, and yellow tape to keep out the crowds but red tape? a car guarding the crime scene. HuH?
5) Citizens making comments like why did the police shoot so many times need to get a clue. this thing could have escaped and re-apeared with a yuppie in its mouth miles away. no time to wait for traquilizer guns. again too much t.v.
thats all for now. well done.
oh, and another reason to carry your gun at all times.

Newsradio 780 Features Humane Society Imbecile President's Commentary on Cougar Shooting

Unfortunately, there is always some so-called expert to weigh in with a "balanced & reasonable" opinion when a microphone is near.

Last night was no different. The local chapter's President is investigating filing a lawsuit against the Dept for the shooting of a wild animal.

If you can find her interview on-line, you'll have the chance to hear her recommend that the tranquilized cougar could have been released into the forest preserves to live out its life.

Did I miss out on the law Daley passed that bans the use of critical reasoning? Because while his criminal constituencies ignore his other edicts, both his lakefront liberals & his underclass seemed to have embraced his ban on critical reasoning, not to mention common sense.

Can't wait to see the animal-rights activists bitching and moaning about what a beautiful animal was killed, why couldn't the police have used a tranquilizer gun, couldn't animal control have been brought out, blah blah blah, yap yap yap, yadda yadda yadda, woof woof woof.

If police had to wait for animal control, the cougar would've made at least another 3 days' hunting out of it. And once animal control showed up, there's no guarantee they could've hit the thing.

Hey! Cerda! Shut up you bottom-feeding, scum-sucking, inept lawyer. Maybe next time the police should just let the animal run wild, hoping that it'll drag you, your newsanchor wife, or any offspring you may have (God help us all) away from your liberal-ass yuppie neighborhood as a meal. That'd be one less idiot contributing to the gene pool in the future, anyhow.

Dozens of shots were fired due to no rifles being available anywhere. The police don't have rifles readily available and the citizens in that liberal neighborhood don't like to even look at a gun much less have a rifle at the ready to loan the police.

I did hear that the Starbucks nearby had their business go up 250% as the police provided entertainment for the liberal scum.

Many people were seen sipping cappuccino using their Blackberry devices writing nasty emails to PETA condemning the police for using VIOLENCE to destroy this beautiful creature of God.

On a more minor note, the neighborhood bank three blocks west of the cougar incident was robbed by a gunman demanding money earlier in the day. It was a poor and oppressed descendant of slaves angry due to never receiving his 40 acres and the mule. Ho hum.

To the officers involved, thanks for a job well done and please don't take any of the negative comments from the animal lovers to heart, you did exactly what needed to be done in this situation.

If anyone still has doubts about why they should boycott the Sun-Times, their headline for this was "Cops gun down cougar" now that sounds like it will be a fair and balanced story, although surprisingly, it was.

David Cerda who you quote is a lawyer who happens to specialize in police brutality cases according to the Channel 7 report I saw. It sounds like he is starting his opening arguments for anyone who was "traumatized" by the police actions.

Chicago Police Capt. Mike Ryan said the cougar tried to attack the officers when they tried to contain it. Police said no one was hurt and they did not know the cougar's gender.

"It was turning on the officers," Ryan said, adding that no officers were hurt. "There was no way to take it into custody."

A comment to the north side resident David Cerda. I have been a Police Officer for over 20 years and cannot recall during this time, any bystander being accidentally wounded by the Police. On the other hand, I cannot keep count of the people wounded by the criminals during their " shoot outs" in the last 12 months alone. Next time I run across a cougar Iwill bring the animal to your house and you can deal with him in your own liberal way in your house. Of course I will have to take away any knives, baseball bats, golf clubs, shovels, axes or other "dangerous weapons" you may have in your house. Since you are obviously not playing with a "full deck". I will not have to take away any guns you may have since you made such a liberal comment. Good luck with the cougar in your house. Great Job by my fellow CPD officers.

As always, the majority of the citizens of this city, being well conditioned to be prey, their reactions to a natural predator being killed will, predictably, be predominantly asinine.

And, as always, the 'Monday Morning Quarterbacks' will be the ones speaking the loudest.

Amazing, isn't it, how so many can believe that, being born to die, somehow death is a shocking and surprising event.

As if the physical body, of any species, was ever designed to last forever.

I envy this predator, it apparently got to live it's life as it's body was designed for, and exited this world quickly.

No lingering and drawn out suffering for this cat, no long and painful experience of lamenting the inevitable, this cat didn't starve to death, die of a disease, no, this cat got lucky.

Bada Bing, Bada Boom, and it was over.

Now, if only the CPD had rifles, this could have been a one shot kill.


As for the media whores, well, they do what they do, pander to the rabbits, encouraging and approving the rabbit mentality, because, after all, what better audience can the advertisers have, than a rabbit audience?


A few more relevant questions:

Which gang did this cat belong to?

Will this cat's gang seek retaliation?

Did this cat have a rap sheet?

Was this cat truly turning it's life around?

How much will the city be paying out to this cat's relatives, once the lawsuit is filed?

Will this cat's death inspire a new respect for the rights of cats everywhere?

And, finally, will there be an increase in the rat population in this neighborhood, now that an apparently efficient, (well fed), predator has been eliminated?

"It concerns me that this many shots were fired with children present and in close proximity to children," said David Cerda, resident. "
Dear Mr Cerda,
If you are so concerned about the children playing in this area, when the parents knew the cougar was running loose all day, you should "Sue the Parents" and have their children taken away for child endangerment. The cougar could have done more damage to their children then PO "shooting a gun at the cougar" in an alley where there should not have been any children.

PO's are trained to use their weapons to hit the target, not the bystanders that may be lulling around. These officers are not drive by shooters, they have to qualify with their weapons and pass target practice. They get scored on this. So, next time you have a cougar running amok in your hood. You get a net and catch him.

Good Luck...you better hope he is old and has bad teeth and a very weak jaw. Between people like you and the news media, police can't do their job.

Thanks Mr. Cerda

Had to be terrifying and listening to tape I would say it was for a few of you. I know how bad ass my tomcat weighing in at 10#s could be when pi$$ed off.
But what's even scarier is the fact that you could have been in your backyard with children,or the neighbors kids and thanks to gun control no one would have a rifle close by or a SW Mountain revolver handy as a defense weapon.
Before all you I love kitty and
gun control freaks speak. Just try to imagine trying to fight for a childs life and take limb out of this cats mouth with a rake.

Peace to all of you. Thank you for your courage because we all know the academy doesn't train you to take down large wild cats.

It was actually a mechanical cougar. It was used by the CPD north area gun team to draw out homeowners who illegally posess handguns w/in city limits. Police did the reverse sting from 0600 hours until 1800 hours after confiscating 30 handguns from law abiding citizens who attempted to protect the neighborhood.

Officers involved in shooting were ordered to blow administratively and stripped of all powers since poor cougar was obviously unarmed.

Reports of it being a wild dangerous animal posing a threat were immediately declared false by Father Phlaeger who demanded an investigation by the US Attorney.

R. Eugene Pincham was seen leaping out of his grave exclaiming "mother fuck them poleese" it's another example of poleese brutality!

The People's Law Office was on the scene taking depositions and are prepared to file wrongful death and civil rights lawsuits on behalf of cougar lovers everywhere. All they want is justice and $3 million dollars in legal fees.

Damn trigger happy murderous police.

All in all, I'd say it was a damn good shooting, to bring down a big cat with HANDGUNS and not even magnum loads but regular police people rounds!

And this from coppers who mostly just shoot once a year at paper targets! Good going.

Does anyone know if anyone with a long gun was even contacted, SWAT etc.? You know, a rifle is good in certain circumstances. You know the yuppies in THAT neighborhood never laid eyes on a hunting rifle.

Tranquilizer gun, are you serious! After leaving CPD in 1999I ended up as a Boss in a large jurisdiction with a lot of wildlife.

Occasionally my Officers and Rangers would have to put down Horses, Cattle and even Wild Dogs. We explored the possibility of equipping some of the men with tranquilizer weaponry.

It got so complicated, what with the level of training needed and the DEA licensing to carry the medications that we said forget it.

When I was in 015 years back it took me 5 shots with a Beretta 92 FS to put down a Pitbull who was attacking me, I can only imagine what it was like to face down that Cougar.

Investigation my rear, those Officers are heros, thanks for a job well done! I am glad there are Cops like that patrolling the streets where I am raising my Family.

The T.V. says, "animal control was in route". Yeah right! We all no how understaffed and incompetant Chicago's so called Animal Control Department is. 1-2 van to cover the entire city of Chicago and no van on midnights. It's a fucking joke. Raccoon in the house, bird came in through your open window, feral cats in your yard, opposum getting in your garbage = Your shit out of luch. No help from animal control. Dog running loose, wounded dog hit by a car, lost dog found. Animal control will take anywhere from 4 hours to yes 3 days to respond to your complaint.

A couple of their employees are on the ball and take pride in their work but all the others are a bunch of complaining, lazy, ass dragging idiots that don't give a shit about animals.

It just goes to show how ungrateful most citizens of Chicago are. A dangerous wild animal is running free in a yuppie Chicago neighborhood and the police eliminate the threat the only way they could at the time and nobody except the cat what injured and assholes like David Cerda still go on to talk shit about the police for just doing their job.

Anyone know the Tac guy in the footage walking down the street with his back to the cougar when it comes out of the gangway?

I am not knocking the responding officers and they did a good job (glad no human was hurt). The thing is alot of these liberals and yuppies believe the stuttering midget that we are a World Class City. Being that the belief they think that we have nets, tranqualizer guns, and a on the spot animal control department.

In a real World Class City all of those tools would be available to humanely catch and release this beautiful animal that is doing nothing that the good Lord intended it to do. Florida has agencies to catch and release gators in urban areas and the northwest states also have departments to hanle cougars,bears, and others wild animals that come to into urban areas. For the most part none are distroyed and caught and released. Only in the World Class City of Chicago does the police have the only option of lethal force.

So these liberals and yuppies ask themselves why in Chicago did this animal have to be distroyed. Not to knock animal control but when you call for them for an assist they are not responding for several hours. The city needs to beef up that unit and better equip them. But the city also needs to better equip police officres. One p.o. made the comment that a long riffle would of done the job quick instead of several shots with these sissy 9mm. Look in our trunks, what tools do we have to deal with different cituations that we may encounter on a daily basis? None!Zero!!We are lucky if we have a jack to change a flat tire.

I remember of a former range officer in 016 that had to put down a deer that was struck by a auto. He had to fire several rounds to put it down. People busted his balls because they said he killed bambi, but the funny thing was when he got very upset when the W/C made him do a T.R.R.
To the officers that shot can you tell us if you were made to fill one out.

Once again to the reponding officers GOOD JOB, just remember that Daley has these people drinking the Koolaide and really belive this is a World Class City. Therefore we as a department are expected to have more tools available than to use lethal force all the time.

P.S. Fuck You Daley!!!

Coupla things...

1. To the officers involved, good job. Thats a war story for the ages and expect lots of stuffed animals to end up in your lockers and squads.

2. Seriously though, ya know, I would feel pretty bad if I had to kill a beautiful animal like that. That would suck. But the oppperative phrase there is HAD TO. If it was me that bagged this cat, you better believe I would have it stuffed in a traditional "Ghetto panther style" statue pose. Still, sucks that a wondeful creature like that had to be put down. Id feel way worse about that than some shitbird who was pointing a pistol at me.

3. The fact that the citizenry is crying "Why diddnt they traqualize it" just shows that they think we are way better equipped than we are. Tranqualizer guns? Cracker please! Were lucky to have a working squad car.

4. Despite what you say guys, there was a better and more humane way to catch this animal. We could have gotten that young, good looking Polish kid from the 015th dist tact team to sit at an al fresco table, put a nice bottle of wine there. Let that cougar sit down, get comfortable, have a few drinks, some nice conversation then load it up into a BMW and away they go. THATS WHAT COUGARS DO!!!!!!

5. To any civilians trolling here. Seriously, wake up! We dont have tranq guns. We have maybe 2 animal control units up for the whole city. This animal (beautiful though it is) is dangerous and nobodies life is worth risking for it.

Seems to me that having a decent number of cops armed with shotguns or rifles would have limited the number of shots fired.

I was in the military and I couldn't fire a handgun accurately beyond 40 feet or so on a range. Now add in fear and adrenaline and a 150 pound eating machine and I'm thinking my accuracy just went down 20-30 feet. The cat lunges at me and I am going to fire everything I have in its general direction and hope I make contact.

The guys who killed this beastie did their jobs. You have a predator like that running around you corner it and kill it. No waiting for Animal Control and tranquilizer guns. If it is a dead or harmed kid versus a cougar the cougar has zero rights.

My fellow civilians who mourn for the animal are stupid. What did they expect the cops to do. Wrassle it and place "paw cuffs" on it.

Nice work.

Q: Was this the cougar seen in North Chicago or Wilmette?
A: No. It was a Kane County Cougar.

ABC news put on experts, like an exotic pet vet and a zoologist. Both said the police shooting the animal was the absolute best course of action.

The vet said that a tranquilzer would have taken at least 20 minutes to take effect and would serve only to make the animal more aggressive. Both explained how dangerous this animal was.

The news also put on some old goof from the humane society who said cougars never attack people. A claim that is absolutely false.

Let's remember there are goofs out there on any news story and, of course, they will seek camera time. Obviously everyone who supports the police, really doesn't give a crap about commenting on the Trib website or running out to put their face on a TV camera. Those people are too busy working.

Stop constantly pitting us against the world because some hot broad with huge cans sticks a microphone in the face of any fool who lacks the common sense that everyone else has.

The police acted bravely. The department is behind them. The city is behind them. The citizens are behind them.

What more do you want?

The media?

The media isn't behind us. They never will be. They are no different than a bum selling Streetwise papers. They'll say whatever they have to to get people to watch them and buy the crap they sell during commercial time.

Get over it.

What dim-wit supervisor decided on red tape for the cougar "scene" ?? Was any officer who crossed the red tape included in a case report??? Reminds me of a dim-wit ADS who insisted on a shooting round-table when some district police had to put down a vicious dog......where does our police department get these supervisors from ???? The stupid tree????"

That asshole of a lawyer CERDA is just upset that the police did their job before that cougar had a chance to attack a citizen. Whereby, he would represent that citizen's family in a lawsuit against the city, because the police didn't do their job.

Superintendent Weis gave a press conference today in response to the outcry over the latest use of excessive force by members of the Chicago Police Department. Although he said "the matter was still under investigation" he also said "Clearly more could have been done." Weis said he now plans to equip every new Tahoe with nooses and tranquilizer guns so next time the officers will have the option of non lethal force when dealing with cougars and other wild predators. He also said the academy will begin training new officers in Cougar behavior and capture techniques. In a statement Mayor Daley denied ever knowing the Cougar and tears filled his eyes and his voice cracked as he claimed he had no idea the cougar intended to enter the city.

Tranquilizer gun?
Shotgun w/capture net projectile?
Each unit armed w/taser?

this is a classic example of what mayor silly has done to the police department. no special equipment available in each patrol unit. officers have no other choice, but to use their authorized pea shooters to KILL, when there are possible alternative methods, if circumstances allow.

i repeat, if circumstances allow. sometimes, to use deadly force is the only alternative.

there is no special equipment available with each patrol unit, which leaves the only alternatives being either a less than prompt multiple hour response if you call for the heavy weapons wagon or shoot to kill with a pea shooter, no inbetween, because mayor jagbag is too cheap and too scared to correctly equip and arm his police department and each individual patrol unit. that would make too much sense and would be silly, silly, silly, just silly.

instead the city money goes for his friends, corruption, shiny beans, flower pots and on and on and on, instead of properly equipping his, our, police department. keep voting democratic.
