PLEASANT GROVE, Utah — Pleasant Grove police report that a dog was attacked by a mountain lion in the area of Cedar Hills on Tuesday night.
The mountain lion attack was confirmed by Utah Division of Wildlife Resources officials, according to police.
While it was originally believed that the dog was attacked in the foothills area of Cedar Hills, police now report that the attack occurred in a private yard.
Police are asking residents to be cautious if they use the Murdock Canal, and that those residents who live in the northern end of Pleasant Grove should be aware of their surroundings.
Specific warnings include bringing pets indoors, and to know at all times, the whereabouts of their small children.
On July 16, officials in West Valley City reported multiple sightings of cougars within their city. On July 18, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources reported that one cougar had been captured. At that time, they said they believed at least one other cougar was still at large.
