Reports of mountain lions in the north Afton area has prompted the Afton Police Department to issue a warning regarding the big cats.
“We have had several reports, tracks have been seen and the mountain lions have been seen multiple times in the Rawhide Trailer Court area,” said Police Chief Randy Haderlie. “If you see a mountain lion don’t try and approach it. Stay away and notify area law enforcement or the Game and Fish.”
According to Haderlie, the Afton Police Department has been working with local Game and Fish personnel on the issue.
“Right now it looks like these animals are just passing through the area,” Haderlie said. “We hope that continues to be the case. Nobody has been attacked. But there has been a number of different sightings. We just want to emphasize for people to stay away from the animals if they do see them and be aware that mountain lions could be in the area


Dear Editor:
Glad to read that we have some cougars in town. I just thought of a great idea for all those who like to watch deer and other wildlife (cougars) in town.
If all those who feed the deer would construct a perch above their feeders for mountain lions, they could watch deer interacting with predators, and at the same time they would be reducing the feral deer population in Afton which would please neighbors who don’t particularly appreciate the effect the deer have on their yards.

Reminds me of the time, when I was 7 or 8 and we had a mountain lion come into the
Woods near where we lived by the Green River in Washington State. The Sherriff's office
put out the word to watch out after dark and not let smaller Children, like me, darn, out
after dark. Heard the cat a couple of times at night, but after awhile didn't here of him
again. I did not here if they caught the Cat or he just moved on.

That reminds me of another wild in-counter with nature, that year at our house. We had a Barn Owl come down our Chimney during the night. My father, as usual, got up early to head to work, and left the house, said nothing unusual. My mother was up getting breakfast ready for my brothers and myself. I spot the Own sitting up above the Fireplace on the upper rock shelf, watching every move we were making. I told my mom to come see the owl in our house. She freaked out and called my dad at work, he told her to call the Fish and game. Well she called the Sherriff's office and a deputy came out. He put on some, Big heavy leather gloves and caught the owl and let him go outside. Luckily we did not have a fire going the night before, as it was unusually warm that day. Might have had a fire during the night. I thought it was pretty cool, with a owl in my house, but my mother thought i was crazy. I told her he wasn't going to hurt anyone unless you make him mad or mess with him.

Ranchers I know had a lion attack their sheep a couple of weeks ago, not far outside Meeteetse. The very sad part is that it is time for the baby lambs to start dropping, and many of them were stillborn. Some sheep were killed, but even those who weren't were affected by the attack
