According to the Daily News-Journal, a “possible mountain lion” was reported to be under the bridge near the Rockvale schools approximately 10:10 a.m. this morning.

The Rutherford County dispatcher sent the “authorities to respond” to this sighting. No other news is available at this time.

My question is, how is it a “possible” mountain lion? It’s not a black panther, it’s not an African lion, it is definitely not a leopard or cheetah; what else could it be? The only other possibility: it’s just a rather large, feral cat and someone panicked (or is in a questionable mindset). C’mon DNJ, don’t keep me in suspense! If you need a cat-tamer, call me. I have plenty of catnip.
