Mountain lion caught near Nevada casino
Nevada (AP) - A mountain lion has been caught after trying to slip into a casino in down town Reno, Nevada, ahead of the breakfast rush.
Nevada Department of Wildlife spokesman Chris Healy says the young male cat's behaviour was "almost the equivalent of being a stupid teenager."
Mr Healy says coming-of-age cougars often end up where they shouldn't after being chased out of a territory by adults.
Guests at Harrah's reported seeing the 45kg cat trying to walk into the casino on Friday morning. When the animal couldn't negotiate the revolving door, it hid under an outdoor stage in a nearby plaza.
