GORDON, Neb. (AP) — Authorities have confirmed the sighting of a mountain lion inside the Nebraska Panhandle community of Gordon.
A household security camera captured images of the big cat over the weekend and again early Monday morning. Sheridan County Attorney Jamian Simmons says a Gordon officer, a sheriff’s deputy and a U.S. Agriculture Department representative identified a location where the cat may have been bedding down and a short time later saw it inside city limits.
The mountain lion evaded them, but Simmons says efforts to track it will continue. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has been notified.
