Cougar spotted in Minneapolis killed on I-394 by Hummer

The driver hit the cat about 2:15 a.m. Wednesday

The cougar spotted roaming the Lowry Hill neighborhood in Minneapolis this week was struck by a motorist and killed early Wednesday as it crossed a freeway.

Nathan Kmetz, 53, was driving west on Interstate 394 near Theodore Wirth Parkway at 2:15 a.m. when the cat appeared out of nowhere. He said he had no chance to stop.

"I never saw it," Kmetz said Wednesday in an interview. "There was a thump, my car went into the median. It happened so fast."
