Flyers for missing pets are lining the lamposts in Tam Valley and parts of Almonte, and resident Laura Roche said she has a pretty good idea why.
Roche lives on Morning Sun Avenue and says at least one neighbor has spotted a mountain lion in the open space between Morning Sun and Greene Street within the past week.
Roche's neighbors have posted signs throughout the Tam Valley and Almonte areas with a warning regarding the sighting and some general information about mountain lions.
Longtime Tam Valley resident Curry Eckelhoff says things have been far from normal on the animal front throughout the neighborhood. According to Eckelhoff, coyotes, which are not new to the area, have been acting out as of late.
"I hear them in the morning before dawn, many of them howling," she says. "I have lived here for many decades and I have never heard them like now."
In response to Kathy Fitzgerald's on July 11 while walking her dog, we've to highlight where recent mountain lion sightings have occurred. Please contribute if you have any information about recent sightings.
