Remember the 124-pound wild cougar gunned down by Chicago police in April 2008 after prowling throughout Roscoe Village? Who could forget. The cougar was the first found in the City since 1855.

The Field Museum holds the cougar's remains, available for scientists studying cougar anatomy. While reporting another story yesterday we came upon the cougar's scapula, or shoulder blade, complete with bullet hole.
