The female cougar was found dead by a group of upland bird hunters, according to a Facebook post from the wildlife agency. The post said the group of hunters immediately contacted a local game warden after discovering the carcass of the big cat and the incident is still under investigation.The sighting marks the first confirmed mountain lion spotting in Kansas since 2016, according to research database Cougarnet.org, though there have been many unconfirmed reports. A string of cougar sightings were confirmed in 2016, including one in southwest Shawnee County on Nov. 20 caught on a trail camera by Rene Tinajero. Based on other sightings in the region at that time, it is probable that the big cat was moving eastward through the state toward the Kansas Missouri state line and didn't establish permanent residence in Shawnee County.

Washington today revealed it would quit the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) a day earlier than planned, once again raising the spectre of nuclear tipped missiles deployed on European soil. The withdrawal comes just days after it emerged the US has begun developing low yield, ”tactical ” nukes following concerns that its existing arsenal of warheads are too big to use.

More than 30 years ago, when he was still a builder in Manhattan, Donald Trump said he had one great ambition: He wanted then U.S. President Ronald Reagan to appoint him America s envoy to Moscow to negotiate a nuclear arms deal. It ll take one hour of discussion before the Cold War is over, Trump was said to have boasted at the time.Plainly, the Trumpian grandiosity was always there, but what happened to the ambition? Now that he s president, Trump doesn t need to wait for an appointment to try his hand at nuclear negotiation. Only last year the president called nuclear weapons the biggest problem in the world. And yet Trump has barely mentioned the issue while his administration announced Friday it is pulling out of the three decade old Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty and is possibly setting its sights on former President Barack Obama s 2011 New START treaty, the strategic arms reduction pact that will expire about two weeks into the next presidential term if it isn t extended. Negotiations on such an extension would need to begin soon.
