Another day, another cougar sighting.

Authorities were searching a Vadnais Heights neighborhood after a homeowner spotted a mountain lion about 9 p.m. Monday, said Holli Drinkwine, a spokeswoman for the Ramsey County Sheriff's Office.

Residents in the area, near Interstates 35E and 694, are advised to use caution into Tuesday morning. Extra patrols were in the area.

And if anyone sees a big cat, call 911, Drinkwine said.

The Vadnais Heights report comes after police in Champlin spotted a cougar on the move across Hwy. 169 toward the Mississippi River over the weekend.
