Mountain Lion Sighting near Meadowood Mall

Posted: Updated:
Local authorities have yet to locate a mountain lion, after a sighting in a Reno parking lot on Wednesday night.

Game wardens with the Nevada Department of Wildlife were called to Meadowood Mall on reports of a cougar, just before 10:30 p.m.

Reno Police had received a call from mall security shortly before that, saying a mountain lion was in a parking lot near the food court.

NDOW officials spotted the mountain lion when they arrived, but the cat darted across the street before it could be tranquilized.

So far authorities have not located the animal, and advise residents not to approach them if they spot one.

Instead, report any sightings to NDOW dispatch at 688-1331.
