Cool Thing du Jour

It's not just that two jaguar cubs were born at the Milwaukee zoo, and not just that their father was captured in the wild (new addition to the captive gene pool, and that's a good thing) -- it's that he's something of a celebrity.

Their father, Pat, was captured in Central America after being deemed a problem jaguar for attacking cattle, so he was a bit of a celebrity at the Belize Zoo before coming to Milwaukee in 2008. The estimated 15-year-old animal also has a book named after him, "Pat the Great Cat: A Jaguars Journey," which was written by children in Milwaukee and Belize as part of a literacy program.

Multi-tasking, done right.
