SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities are warning the public about a possible mountain lion sighting in the Rancho Viejo area.

The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Animal Control Division cautions people to be aware of a possible roaming mountain lion in the vicinity of the Santa Fe Community College and the Institute of American Indian Arts campus.

An area resident told sheriff’s officials Wednesday about seeing a mountain lion in the area of the Rancho Viejo subdivision.

Authorities say residents should keep an eye on their domestic pets, keep food sources indoors and keep their dogs on a leash while on a walk.
