Mountain Lion Sightings in Lefors

2/6/2024

Over the past several months, we have heard reports of sightings of a mountain lion on the outskirts of Lefors.  In the last few weeks, the sightings have become more frequent and the cat has been seen in town in an area from Tenth Street to Skyline to Tumbleweed.  Also possible sightings at the motorcycle track, and in the lot north of the City Park.  We have had a report of a dog being attacked in that area.  Please remain aware of your surroundings at night and take extra care when letting pets out after dark.  If you see the lion, please contact the City Marshal or City Hall.  The Game Warden is aware of the cat being in the area.  Mayor Ray found tracks on Skyline Drive, and as you can see, it appears to be a large cat.
