A cougar has been sighted in Kearney but authorities have been unable to locate the animal.

A golfer at Meadowlark Golf Course told police he spotted a cougar running across the course near the clubhouse about 1 p.m. Saturday.

Nick Fryda with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says the
ground in the area was dry, so he couldn't find the animal's
tracks.

There have been several reports in recent weeks of cougar
sightings in nearby York and Hall counties.

Cougars, which also are called mountain lions or pumas, have
turned up as far east in Nebraska as Omaha.
