An Arizona Game and Fish Department officer had to shoo away a mountain lion Monday from a home in Oro Valley.
The mountain lion was avoiding the midday heat by hanging out on the home's porch, the department showed in a video posted on Twitter.
The mountain lion is seen running into the home's fence in an attempt to chase a deer. The department reminded Arizonans that mountain lion sightings usually increase as it gets hotter.
Mountain lion sightings should be reported to 623-236-7201.
@azgfdTucson officer hazing a young mtn. lion away from an Oro Valley home today. Lion was beating the midday heat on the porch until it saw deer, then hit the fence in pursuit. Such sightings increase as temps do. Call 623-236-7201 ASAP 24&7 to report. pic.twitter.com/8qL70g356t— AZ Game & Fish Dept (@azgfdTucson) June 11, 2019
