The poet Carl Sanburg drew a parallel between cat behavior and fog saying it sits “on silent haunches and then moves on.” Apparently, that’s just what the mountain lion in southwest Jackson did last week. Jackson Police Lieutenant Cole Nethercott says after several days of intensive monitoring and trapping efforts by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, no further evidence of the cat could be found in the area. Consequently, it was decided to reopen the bicycle and pedestrian pathway there. None-the-less, Nethercott says people in that area should be alert for the cat’s reappearance and should they encounter it, stay calm, don’t run, try to look as large as you can and if you are attacked, fight back. He also asks that should anyone spot the animal again, that they call the police department immediately and report it.
