Mountain lion spotted again in Roseville

A mountain lion remains in a woodsy part of Roseville after another sighting was reported to police.

Roseville police report that a mountain lion has been spotted many times since September in the Miner’s Ravine-Secret Ravine area. One report was received in September, several in November and early December and most recently a week ago on Jan. 16.

The latest report came from a Roseville resident who glimpsed a big cat on the trail near Secret Ravine Parkway and Alexandra Drive, not far from the Interstate 80-Highway 65 interchange.

The mountain lion has not attacked anyone or displayed aggressive behavior. The police department has posted the trail system with signs to make people aware in the area populated by homes, a school and businesses.

The state department of Fish and Wildlife advises hikers and joggers to not go on the trail alone, closely supervise children, don’t run from a mountain lion and fight back if attacked.
