With the spring weather comes the reports of animal wildlife being spotted in the city. A fisherman up early this morning fishing near the foot bridge by Portland Avenue reported seeing a cougar on the shore. Our officers checked the area and didn’t locate the cougar.
While cougar sightings are rare in Wisconsin, there are things you can do to enhance your safety. If a cougar approaches and does not immediately flee, stand tall, wave your arms, throw stones or other objects and yell. Don’t run, but slowly back away from the site, keeping an eye on the cougar.
We are also receiving reports about a fawn that has been snacking in gardens in the area of Cranston Road, Austin Place, and Collingswood Drive. The fawn’s mama is nearby – so please leave the fawn alone.
If you do happen to see an animal that looks like a cougar, please let us know so we can inform the rest of the Beloit community. You can contact us at 608-757-2244. You can also report cougar and other large mammal sightings to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources online using the link below.

This brings up the next topic: Local police said they were going to be transparent, when encrypting. We feel the police should have at least released some kind of information on this very DANGEROUS incident. But they have yet to do so…
How transparent do you think the local police have become since encrypting?
Update: Police have confirmed the kidnapping call but have downplayed it and said it was a “Simple Kidnapping” and that one person was in custody. No other information was released.
