Unwelcome Cougar Shot After Allegedly Breaking Into Family Home

There are so many reasons not to live in the far-flung communities of the Central Valley — bad schools, bad husbands, and really bad credit.

Oh, and those uninvited cougars — there's another reason.

Turlock resident Tami Mendonca was doing some yard work at her home on Sunday morning when she heard a loud crash in the back of the house. She found her back door had been “kicked in” and was hanging by its hinges, the Sacramento Bee reports.

So she did what any sane woman living in Turlock would do — she grabbed her machete.
