ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. – Is a mountain lion on the loose in Arapahoe County, or is the Broncos’ Week 1 opponent doing a bit of spying ahead of the season opener?
Two callers reported what they believe are mountain lion tracks on a trail off E Broncos Pkwy. Wednesday morning.
The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office says the calls came in around 9 a.m. and that deputies are working to find the animal.
