Pataskala woman will not be charged for cougar attack

Jul 26, 2012

Prosecutors in Pataskala say a local woman will not be charged for a cougar attack that left a Licking County caseworker missing part of her finger. Evelyn Shaw's cougar bit 51-year-old caseworker Cindy Robson in late June as she was evaluating the home for Shaw's two nieces. The animal remains at Shaw's home. Police say it appears Shaw did not act illegally and new state exotic animal regulations take effect in the fall.
