Pet cougar bites caseworker, perplexing police
Summary: 

A caseworker making a house call to see if it was safe for three-year twins to live in a home with exotic pets was bitten by a pet cougar. The owner claimed the big cat had no teeth and asked if the caseworker would like to pet the animal, but the casework declined the offer. The caseworker instead put her hand on the fence and the cougar bit her finger.
