Sheriff’s Receive Report of 3 Mountain Lions in Denair

Sheriff’s Receive Report of 3 Mountain Lions in Denair Brandon McMillan/TurlockCityNews.com
Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Deputies were in Denair late on Tuesday night on the report of three mountain lions spotted in the area, however they were unable to locate the animals.

The Sheriff’s Department received a report of three mountain lions running together in the area of Zeering Road and Merced Avenue on Tuesday night.

According to Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Sgt. Ed Ridenour, deputies searched the area, but were unable to locate the animals.

Ridenour added that the sighting may have been large dogs that were seen in the area.

The Sheriff’s Department has received an influx of calls concerning the mountain lion recently, said Ridenour, however only a print has been found in Denair.

With all of the concern about the mountain lion, which was first spotted more than a month ago, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife hosted an informational meeting in Denair last week.

According to the Turlock Mountain Lion Watch Facebook, officials gave a presentation on mountain lions, including their feeding habits, range, and what to do in an encounter. Officials also answered questions asked by those who attended the meeting.

The unconfirmed sighting in Denair on Tuesday night is just one of many that local law enforcement agencies have received since a mountain lion was first spotted on Sept. 21.

Despite all of the sightings, and many rumors, the Turlock City Council did not cancel Halloween this year.

Anyone who sees a mountain lion is asked to call 911 immediately.
