Description:
This is a black and white photo shows local O..P.P. officer Jack Currie in the local detachment viewing a temporary guest whose transportation had left him stranded on the highway. The young cougar reclines on the floor showing off a colgate smile for the officer.
Notes:
The handlers truck broke down while he was transporting two young cougars and with no place to keep the cats while repairs were made, the O.P.P. volunteered to "babysit" temporarily.

"The Lighter side of policing with Thessalon Datachment"
"A young Jack Currie with feline friend after a breakdown stranded the animal handlers on the highway. They had no place to go with the cougars, so we baby-sat them."
