Mountain Lion Sited Near Elementary School

Posted: Updated:

A mountain lion sited in Bismarck may still be in the neighborhood. While this picture confirming the animal's presence is more than two weeks old, others in the area say they have seen it more recently.

Karolyn Morris has been watching her son's house while he's on vacation. She says she saw the cat last week. And since then, she and her neighbors are being very careful when stepping outside.

"But I'm sure they would attack. Who knows if they have rabies, you know? If they have rabies, they would attack anything. So, we are all real cautious. I know I won't let the other cat out," says Morris.

Morris says two of her son's three cats are missing.

Prairie Rose Elementary, which is nearby, kept children inside again today and didn't let anyone walk home. There's no school in the district tomorrow or Monday, and sheriff's deputies are increasing patrols in the area.
