West Sacramento police are warning residents to be cautious in the area of South River Road after a building contractor reporting seeing a possible mountain lion there twice in two days.
The contractor went to police today after seeing what he thought to be a cougar just before noon on the Stone Lock property, an undeveloped area along South River Road, east of Hearst Street, according to a police news release.
The contractor said he saw a mountain lion Tuesday as well, the report states.
Police are advising residents to bring pets indoors at night, and to avoid being in the area in the early evenings, late at night or in the early mornings, when mountain lions might be active.
