A female cougar, about 2 years old, reluctantly leaves a state Department of Fish and Wildlife trap northeast of Arlington on Wednesday afternoon. It took agents more than half an hour to get the animal to leave the cage; normally, they said, cougars run off as soon as the door opens.

The Everett Herald has a great story Thursday about efforts to trap and relocate a female mountain lion that was wandering around too close to populated areas.

The animal was captured on Tuesday and release back into the wild northeast of Arlington a day later.

"Growling and mistrustful, she was reluctant to leave the cylinder-shaped aluminum-sided cage trap that bore the warning DANGER KEEP AWAY in tall red letters. It took agents more than a half hour to prod the predator out through the open door," the Herald reported.
