The "Grafton cougar" that made national attention after it was spotted frequently roaming a rural neighbourhood in Grafton last week has found a new home for now—right here in Peterborough at the Riverview Park & Zoo.

The cougar was captured by MNR officials in a live trap, unharmed, Friday night and is now in quarantine at the zoo.

No word yet on how long it will reside there, and what the plan is.
