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.
Fan sent us the following photos and said there was 2 alligators in the spillway near Lathers and Hart in Beloit around 2:30 pm today.

Again, it is not confirmed at the time of posting this. We are awaiting to hear back from officials.
Note: After we posted this, several said it appears to be a possible prank with a remote control alligator heads or alligator head decoys that scare off other wildlife. So unknown if this is real or a possible prank.
A few years ago an alligator was located in the Rock River near S. Beloit. Officials said they believed an owner had it as a pet and then it got to large and then disposed of it in the Rock River. Officials were able to catch it.
