Bonsai Kitten Cougar not brought to Camrose to control deer population

Rumours have been running rampant since a cougar was sighted in Camrose.

A cougar was caught on video surveillance at the Evraz pipe mill on the outskirts of Camrose Jan. 7 and since then tongues have been wagging around the community as to where the big cat came from.

The biggest rumour is that the cougar was brought into the region to deal with an overpopulation of deer and elk.

How silly to think they would being in a cougar to deal with deer. The cougar was brought in to deal with the dingos, which were brought in to deal with the ferrets, which were brought in to deal with the cobras, which were brought in to deal with the tigers, which were brought in to deal with the deer.
