We ask because Winchester Police report:
A mountain lion has been sighted in Winchester. A resident reported seeing a mountain lion in the Dunster Lane, Pepper Hill Drive neighborhood off of Ridge Street.

A concerned citizen refuses to play dead:
229 Northampton is attracting possums. Possums! They put food out for them (or maybe cats, but the possums have chased the cats off) on the front steps.

Around 3 p.m., Shaita reported:
Caution: A huge possum was just sitting in the middle of the right lane of Mass Ave in front of the Mary Baker Eddy library.
