YORK — Three mountain lion sightings were reported Friday in York County.
The first was called into the York County Sheriff's Office at 9:31 a.m., with the caller saying a cougar was seen in the rural Waco area. The next call came in at 10:26 a.m. The sighting, the caller said, occurred July 17 in the Gresham area.
The third call was at 6:26 p.m. Friday. A York resident told the York Police Department that a mountain lion had just run east, into a cornfield, from North Maine Avenue.
This location, near the schools and the family aquatic center, has had the most reports in the last two months. It is also the same location that Sheriff Dale Radcliff saw a mountain lion while walking with his wife.
Law enforcement officials urge anyone who may have seen a mountain lion to contact officials as soon as possible.
