After a resident in the SaddleBrooke area caught a photo of a mountain lion on Saturday, the Arizona Game and Fish Department is using the sighting as a teachable moment for locals.
The mountain lion has been spotted in the area three times over the last eight days, Game and Fish spokesman Mark Hart says, adding that the mountain lion hasn’t approached or hurt anyone.
