Four more mountain lion sightings have been reported in York County, although one has already been debunked.
A York resident reported seeing a mountain lion go into a cornfield Monday afternoon.
On Monday morning, another sighting was reported west of town along Road G.
Sheriff Dale Radcliff says another report on Monday came from someone who reported seeing a mountain lion about 3½ miles south of Waco on Friday.
None of the sightings has been confirmed.
A fourth Monday report of a mountain lion came from a motorist who reported seeing a mountain lion near Interstate 80. Radcliff said that person was mistaken, because the animal turned out to be a dead dog.
Mountain lions also are called cougars or pumas.
