Play associated audio

Residents of Round Hill, Va., believe they've seen and heard a mountain lion in their midst, according to reports.

According to the Loudoun County Times, about two weeks ago, a woman says she spotted a mountain lion behind her home in Round Hill.

She did take a picture of it, which came out a little dark, but in it, you can see two reflecting eyes relatively high off the ground. Other neighbors have reported hearing shrieking or growling sounds.

Officials have been quick to point out they've never spotted a cougar in that area, but that there are frequent resident sitings across the state. There hasn't been a confirmed siting since the 1800s.
