CANTON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio nature preserve has closed on unconfirmed reports of a mountain lion lurking in the area.
Canton City Engineer Dan Moeglin tells The Repository newspaper the city has temporarily closed its 68-acre Fairhope Nature Preserve because, as he puts it, "We don't want to put anyone in harm's way."
A nearby resident reported seeing a mountain lion twice on Monday.
Another person made a similar report on Tuesday.
