Pleasant Grove, Utah — After a dog was attacked by a mountain lion in Cedar Hills on Tuesday, police are warning residents to watch their small children and pets.
On Wednesday, the Pleasant Grove Police Department issued the warning after the Utah Department of Wildlife Resources confirmed the attack.
According to police, the dog was attacked while in a yard and not in the nearby foothills.
Anyone using or walking near the Murdock Canal is urged to be cautious.
“Please be aware of your surroundings and know where small children are at all times. Please consider bringing pets indoors,” the department wrote.
According to DWR officials, they trapped and euthanized a mountain lion that was seen in a Pleasant Grove neighborhood last month.
