YORK — York County Sheriff Dale Radcliff said his department was notified that a woman saw a mountain lion just west of York. The woman said the animal crossed the intersection of Fourth Street and Highway 81.
The department was notified Friday, but the sighting may have taken place a few days earlier.
The unconfirmed cougar sighting is one of several in the York area in the past few weeks.
York Mayor Chuck Harris recently contacted the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission about the cougar sightings, saying he was worried about the safety of the city's residents. The agency has said there is no immediate danger to residents. — World-Herald News Service
