SALEM, Ore. (AP) - It was a big cat in a Salem back yard - but not a cougar.
Police had responded Friday to a report of a young cougar in the yard near a wooded area. The animal moved on without threatening anyone.
A state wildlife biologist reviewed photos of the cat and determined Monday it was not a cougar. It's a domesticated cat - a Maine-Coon breed that often weighs more than 20 pounds.
