RIGBY, Idaho (KIFI) - Wildlife officials continue to look for a mountain lion in the Rigby area.

Rigby police reported on Facebook the cougar was seen Tuesday evening in the 300 block of East 2 North in the alley near Sudsy Car Wash.

This is the third reported sighting in the last week, they said.

They believe the animal is using the Rigby Canal as a travel avenue. Use caution in the area and do not approach if you see it.

"If you do encounter a mountain lion, you want to get big and puffy, kind of tall as you can and make sure that you're making lots of noise," said Fish and Game representative James Brower.

Fish and Game urges you to call 911 if sighted. Also, protect your kids and pets in the area around the canal.
