GRENTA, Neb. (KMTV) — If you live in Sarpy County, keep your eyes peeled. The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office says there was, what they believe to be, a credible mountain lion sighting in the area.

They say the sighting took place yesterday and that they are working with Nebraska Game and Parks.

Additional patrols will be in the area and they urge people to notify the Sarpy County Sheriff's Office of sightings at 402-593-2288.

Late this afternoon, the Sheriff's Office says the below picture posted on their Facebook page earlier today turned out not be a photo the reported mountain lion that was sighted, but they believe there is a credible report that a mountain lion was sighted, and they continue to be on the lookout for it.
