Residents of an Ohio County neighborhood believe a mountain lion is roaming near their homes after hearing strange sounds.
Several residents in Clearview say they have been hearing strange noises and growling in the woods behind their homes. Some are worried for their pets.
Police say they have not received any reports, but residents say the large cat has been seen in the area.
Clearview resident Darrell Newland said he's heard the noises in the last week or two mainly in the evening.
"We've heard some weird growling like pitch noises like out here," he said. "My neighbor up the road, he said that he's heard them up there in the back area up on top we have a lot of woods there between us and Oglebay park."
WTRF.com contacted the Department of Natural Resources, which indicated they had not received any reports of mountain lions.
