Can you spot the mountain lion? Dogs treed this lion on July 4 approximately 1.5 miles in from Gate 3 on the Turkey Springs Trail. Locals have also reported lion sightings in town. Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) reminds people to be vigilant, especially with children and pets. Pets and hobby livestock should be kept in a sturdy, complete enclosure. According to CPW, a lion can jump a 6-foot fence without any trouble.
