Wildlife officials scare away mountain lion spotted near Oro Valley home

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.
