TUCSON, Ariz.-- A mountain lion and its cub were spotted going through neighborhoods near the Catalina Foothills on Saturday.
The two mountain lions can be seen jumping over a fence off Sunrise Drive and Wilmot Road.
AZGFD warns residents not to approach or run from a mountain lion, if spotted. Instead:
- Stand and face the animal, making eye contact
- Protect small children so they won't panic
- Stay calm, speak loudly and firmly
- Try to appear larger by raising your hands or opening your jacket
- Throw branches, stones or whatever you can reach without crouching or turning your back
- Slowly back away from the area
- Report the sighting to Arizona Game and Fish Department
