A mountain lion appears to be on the move in Des Moines. Police shared video of a new sighting captured overnight Friday. The latest report comes from the city's southside not far from the airport.

There was another sighting west of the downtown-area earlier this week.

Police have been warning people to be mindful of the animal as it was spotted ambling through neighborhoods. Authorities also recommend that people in the area keep watch over small children and pets that are outside.
