Report of a mountain lion sighting near college graduation

Posted:
CLINTON (KWWL) -

Some tense moments Saturday in Clinton as police and state wildlife officials searched for a mountain lion.  You may remember last month a mountain lion was spotted outside Clinton and reported to authorities.

Saturday, someone spotted a similar big cat near Ashford University in Clinton. 

While officers and Iowa DNR officials searched for that mountain lion, the school graduated 800 online graduates from Iowa and other states.

About 4000 people attended the commencement ceremony.

The DNR says it was never able to find any prints Saturday and could not verify there was, indeed, a mountain lion in the area.
