ROCKLIN (CBS13) – Another reported mountain lion sighting caused a stir at Rocklin High School late Wednesday afternoon.
Captain Lon Miklka with the Rocklin Police Department tells CBS13 that they got a call from school administrators around 11:30 a.m. about a possible mountain lion sighting. A school employee reportedly saw a mountain lion near the soccer field.
Officers showed up and searched the nearby hillside for an hour but couldn’t find the cougar.
Wednesday’s report joins the three other sightings of a mountain lion in and around Rocklin. If you do run into a mountain lion, authorities say, make yourself look bigger than you are by putting your arms up. Then try to slowly back away from the animal.
Many students took to Twitter in reaction to Wednesday’s sighting:
sooo I walk home behind the stadium does that mean the mountain lion will attack me? Yolo—
