You might want to let the DNR know about your siting, if you haven't already.

A lady said one ate her dog 2 weeks ago in Kansas city kansas and one was hit by a car in kansas city Mo last year. The conservation department said they are moving to this area because of the large deer populations.

Sighting in Iowa City

My husband and I were walking our dog last Saturday night (Oct. 30th) on a road behind the University of Iowa Athletic Club in Iowa City and we saw a mountain lion cross over from Finkbine Golf Course to a heavy wooded area just south of the Finkbine parking lot (fthis area is FULL of deer). There is no question we saw the long roped tail and cat ears...it paused between street lights before it dashed into the woods... we filed a report with UI safety and security.
