Amongst all the attention this week in Australia regarding the banning of the Savannah cat, a parallel story has been running in the United States. Students at the University of Maryland reported sighting of a cougar, causing a nationwide burst of attention. It turns out not to be a cougar at all but a Savannah cat (probably). It has now been captured on film, but continues to roam the campus. It hasn't caused any problems, and is most likely someone's escaped pet.
