Police: 3 reported mountain lion sightings in Greenwich

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) says it is investigating several sightings of what may be a mountain lion on King Street outside the Brunswick School in Greenwich.

Police say the animal was seen on three separate occasions by two faculty members and an EMSrepresentative, but the DEP has yet to confirm whether the animal in question is actually a mountain lion.

The Greenwich Conservation Department says mountain lions were exterminated in Greenwich and New York more than a century ago.

The DEP says it will spend the next few days examining the animals paw prints and feces to determine whether or not it is a mountain lion.
