Today officials are investigating the report of a mountain lion being spotted in the Sand Hill Road area of Tolland. Residents in the area are urged to be aware of the possibility until officials can confirm the sighting. Officials from the Connecticut State Police and Department of Environmental Protection are assisting in the investigation.
Tolland Animal Control would like to remind residents not to leave food, garbage and such outside in areas close to their homes that may attract wild life and to be sure not to leave children or small pets unattended.
Residents are reminded that all of Tolland’s wildlife should be enjoyed from a distance; people should refrain from getting too close and should never try to pet or feed any type of wild animal.
