The cougar was trapped on Tuesday when it was spotted too close to an area populated by humans. After receiving a tag, Washington wildlife agents were ready to release a captured cougar back into the wild northeast of Arlington, but it didn't want to go. They banged on the back of the cage, poked the cougar with a pole and tilted the cage and tried to slide her out, but she wouldn't budge.

File - In this Feb. 3, 2012 file photo, shows students work out in the Roseburg High School gym in Roseburg, Ore., where the school's mascot is the Indians, and their logo is a feather. The Oregon Board of Education is scheduled to vote on a resolution that would require Oregon schools to retire their Native American mascots within five years or risk losing state funding. The vote Thursday, May 17, 2012, could give Oregon some of the nation's toughest restrictions on American Indian nicknames, mascots and logos. If approved, eight high schools would need to change their nickname and mascot by July 2017 or lose state money. Seven schools identified as the Warriors would only have to alter their mascot.

Brian McNamee, Roger Clemens' former strength coach leaves federal court in Washington, Tuesday, May 15, 2012. McNamee is far and away the government's key witness, the only person who will claim firsthand knowledge of Clemens taking performance-enhancing drugs. The former baseball great is accused of lying when he told Congress in 2008 that he had never used steroids or HGH. McNamee again gave vivid and colorful details about injections. He appeared less nervous than he did on Monday, and his voice rose as he spoke of marital problems that he said developed in part because of his relationship with Clemens. The time away from home training Clemens meant McNamee didn't have time to take his wife and children to water parks and other family outings, he said, and his wife was concerned that her husband would become a fall guy at Clemens' expense.
