NEWSLINK: Turns out, an Indiana 'cougar' seen on video was just a fat cat
A video of a "cougar" sighting in Indiana that went viral this past weekend is not ... fur real.
Turns out, it was just a "well-fed domestic cat," the Indiana Department of Natural Resources told Indianapolis TV station WTHR 13. The video, which was posted by Facebook user Cole Ranker, claimed to be a "Cougar sighting in Noblesville, Indiana," on Saturday morning.
"This video is from about 250 yds with my IPhone," Ranker posted. It quickly exploded, amassing more than 9,600 shares and 697,000 views.
