WINNETKA, Ill., Sept. 5 (UPI) -- Police in Illinois said they have received a report of a cougar sighting north of Chicago, but the sighting has not been confirmed.
Winnetka police said a resident reported spotting the animal near the village's public works facility around 8:30 p.m. Monday, about two months after similar sightings were reported in nearby villages, the Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday.
The Illinois Department of Natural Resources said there are no sustained cougar populations in the state, but the animals have been known to follow lake Michigan to Illinois from their homes in South Dakota.
