Possible cougar sightings in North Chicago

Authorities received at least three calls Friday from people claiming to have seen a large cat-like animal near the park district youth center.

Officers searched Friday night in the area of 15th and Lewis in North Chicago but did not find the tan-colored 30-inch tall animal. They did, however, find large paw prints.

Anyone who spots the cougar in the area is asked to call 911.
