DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A mountain lion appears to be ambling through much of Des Moines.

Police on Thursday warned city residents to be mindful of the animal after it was spotted on security video in a neighborhood just west of downtown.

On Friday, the city released a video showing the mountain lion strolling overnight through a neighborhood miles away on the city's southside, not far from the airport. The area is within a couple miles of open farmland.

Authorities recommend that people in the area keep watch over small children and pets that are outside.
