Mountain Lion Lurking in Wellington

Just when you thought Northern Colorado was safe again after the capture of the elusive, aggressive llama in the Bobcat Ridge Natural Area, we get word of this... 

A mountain lion was spotted in Wellington. 

This  comes just a few weeks after a Colorado Parks and Wildlife officer shot and killed a mountain lion near Wellington. 

Colorado parks and Wildlife give these tips for dealing with the big cats: 

  • Clear brush away from buildings and in the yard to eliminate hiding places. 
  • Install motion detectors for night lighting.
  • Do not provide food for any wildlife. For example, bird feeders can attract deer and raccoons, which can attract mountain lions.
  • Keep animals and livestock in an enclosed pen when they're outside, and bring pets inside at night.
  • Tell children to play close to the house, particularly when it's near dusk. If they see a mountain lion, they should go inside.
