Police Report: Fight at Shorewood High School; Car Break-In

A roundup of the latest from the Shorewood police log.

Police say a male Shorewood High School student hit another male student in the face several times with a close fist causing him pain and discomfort on campus Monday at 2 p.m. The victim did not require any medical attention.

The fight was possibly caused by a comment about one of the males' mother. Police made no arrests and no citations were issued.

Bitten by a feral 'kitten'? Kinda reminds me of the infamous rabbit attack on President Carter...

Why corner a feral kitten? Why not just trap it if you're sure it's abandoned--which it may not be? Or grab it using thick gloves? What is our policy on feral cats anyway?

To paraphrase one of my co-stars, "Look, that kitten's got a vicious streak a mile wide! It's a killer!"

I wasn't expecting Cardinal Biggles.
