On this day in history: June 30, 1908

A huge airburst explodes over Podkamennaya Tunguska at 7:30 am. The blast flattens thousands of square miles of trees, and is now believed to have been caused by an asteroid or comet impact.

Yesterday morning, a Corning man found a pair of baby cougars in his yard on Woodson Avenue. A dog had killed one of the cougars, but the other cat is well. Steve Gautier discovered the animals and is keeping the surviving cougar safe in his yard until either its mother comes back or Fish and Game officers pick it up. The cougar is not a violent animal at this age, but when fully grown, a cougar can weigh more than 100 pounds and can be vicious.
