Mountain lion seen at the Divide Gate

Mtn lion2

A large mountain lion was seen at the Divide gate multiple times over the weekend. This follows sightings over the past several weeks around Carterville Road and Cordillera Way leading Cordillera Public Safety to issue this warning.  

Residents and guests are advised to take precautions when outside.
1.Make lots of noise if you come  and go during dusk to dawn when mountain lions are most active.
2.Keep pets under control.  Roaming pets are easy prey and can attract lions.  Bring pets in at night.  Do not feed pets outside.  
If you see a lion:
1.If you see a lion, do not approach it.  Most mountain lions will try to avoid a confrontation.  Give them a way to escape.
2.Maintain visual contact with the lion so you can see what it is doing.  
3.STAY CALM.  Talk calmly but firmly.  
4.STOP and BACK AWAY SLOWLY. Running may stimulate a lion's instinct to chase and attack.  Face the lion and stand upright.
5. DO ALL THAT YOU CAN TO APPEAR LARGER.  Raise your arms. Position yourself to appear bigger by getting on a stump or rock. Open your jacket.  Stay upright, facing the lion.  
6.If you see a lion and are with a small child, pick up the child so they do not panic and run.  Tell the child not to speak - the high voice may sound like prey to the lion. If you are with a larger child, have them stand behind you.
7.If the lion behaves aggressively, throw stones, branches or whatever you can get your hand on without crouching down or turning your back.
8.If the lion behaves more agressively, (eyes locked on you, ears forward, feet underneath them) YELL LOUDLY in an aggressive manor and wave your arms.  Loud, sustained noise is most effective at deterring a lion.
9.FIGHT BACK if the lion attacks you. People have successfully fought back with rocks, sticks, caps or jackets, garden tools and their bare hands.  Remain standing and try to get back up if you are knocked down.  
Cordillera is mountain lion territory and are most prevalent in areas of pinyon pine, juniper, mountain mahogany, ponderosa pine and oak brush.  Lions generally will be most abundant in areas with plentiful deer populations, like in Cordillera.  

Cordillera Public Safety does not manage mountain lion populations.  However, if you see a mountain lion or are attacked by a lion, call public safety immediately at 970-926-2335.
