COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho — The city of Coeur d'Alene has posted signs around Tubbs Hill warning people that a mountain lion was recently spotted in the area.
Monte McCully, city trails coordinator, said Tuesday that the sighting was reported June 1.
“Several people saw it,” he said.
The big cat was also reportedly seen Sunday morning lounging on the lawn of a home near 13th and Ash Avenue in the Sanders Beach area.
A dead deer, partially eaten, was found on Tubbs Hill during a trail project Saturday, McCully said. A dead fawn was also found. Both had been dead for some time, he added.
Scat found on Tubbs was believed to be from a mountain lion, McCully said.
He said it was the second reported lion sighting this year, with the first around April.
One Sanders Beach resident said he walks his dog often, so he would have to be on alert.
