Tease photo

TUBA CITY, Ariz - There have been reports of three mountain lions lurking around Pasture Canyon and the area near the fairgrounds. Pasture Canyon is heavily wooded, and a place where the big cats might roam. A Tuba City Police spokeswoman said that the department has received several calls regarding mountain lion sightings. Bertha Nez-Tsosie, who runs the Tuba City Flea Market, said tracks were seen in the area of her ranch earlier last week.
