Reported by Donna Kirker-Morgan:

Spring Grove -- Pictures of a mountain lion supposedly taken in York County are spreading through the internet.

CBS 21 News did some hunting into the reported sighting in the Spring Grove area, and so did the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

First, it appears the photos that are being shared on Facebook have been seen before by people dating back to 2009.

The Facebook posts say the photos are from trail cameras put up by the Game Commission and that is not true.

However, the Game Commission did send people to the area to investigate just in case.

“There's no free ranging mountain lions in PA but that said, there is always the chance of captive animal escaping and making its way into the wild,” commented Travis Lau, spokesman with the PA Game Commission.

So far their investigation found no evidence of a mountain lion in that area.
