TRI-CITIES, Wash. - Over a year ago a cougar was found hiding at USA Brake and Auto Repair in the Tri-Cities, spending at least four nights there. 

Kennewick, as the cougar is now called, had been through quite a lot, only weighing 90 pounts, covered in ticks, and suffering from several broken teeth.

But over the past year, Kennewick has been staying at Wildcat Haven in Sherwood Oregon and is much healthier.  Now weighing 175 pounds and having regular vet visits, Kennewick seems to be getting along with everyone else.
