Multiple cougar sightings in Santa Cruz
There have been multiple mountain lion sightings in downtown Santa Cruz this morning. Officials are asking anyone who sees a cat to call the local non-emergency line. This is a good reminder that living in mountain lion country often includes urban areas – proper safety measures should still be taken to keep pets, livestock, and people safe.
