Mountain lion spotted in Perry Park neighborhood

PERRY PARK, Colo. - A mountain lion has been spotted exploring a foothills neighborhood near Larkspur.

7NEWS viewer Pati Walton said a neighbor in Perry Park spotted the mountain lion outside her bedroom on Tuesday morning.

Walton said she ran to the neighbor's house and snapped a photo of the cougar in a rocky area, near her friend's deck.

Walton said when she moved the screen to get a better picture, the mountain lion ran off.

Walton said she saw a bear years ago and sees fox all the time, but she had never seen a mountain lion before.
