Authorities received a report of a possible mountain lion sighting in the upper east side of Helena Friday morning, two days after a mountain lion was killed outside an office building near downtown Helena.
The Helena Police Department is searching in the area of the 1600 block of Ohio Avenue but has not yet located a mountain lion. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks has been notified and will assist with the search.
"Again, with the possible sighting, we ask for the public to be aware of their surroundings and contact the police department if there are any further sightings," Lt. Brett Petty of the Helena Police Department wrote in a press release.
On Wednesday, authorities killed and removed a mountain lion that was found outside a NorthWestern Energy building at 1315 N. Last Chance Gulch.
