Residents spotted what looked like a mountain lion or cougar yesterday in the Star Valley Lamplighter RV Park.
Office Manager Janet Bailey said she called the Gila County Sheriff’s Office after a tenant told her he had seen a large cat-like animal walking towards the clubhouse about 9:30 a.m.
Bailey said the cat was probably heading to the hill behind the clubhouse.
By the time a deputy arrived, the cat was gone.
Bailey said this isn’t the first time a cat has been seen in the park. She said there have been several sightings through the years.
