Mountain lions lurking

KETCHUM, Idaho - Mountain lions have been in the news in several towns of late.

In Idaho's Wood River Valley, hunters killed two cougars near a subdivision located between Ketchum and Hailey. A resident of the subdivision, Steve Carlson, told the Idaho Mountain Express that he found large cat tracks in the snow around his house. This was after evidence of the unusual from his dog. "My dog got spooked and came in the bedroom whimpering, so I knew something was out there," he said.

In Colorado, mountain lions were also seen within the town of Granby. There were no reports of pets being attacked, although residents were advised to be careful about walking around at night, just in case the big animals were still hanging about.
