Barbara Miller used to routinely take her dog on evening walks by the river near her home — but not anymore. About eight to 10 weeks ago, Miller and some neighbors say they spotted a mountain lion roaming in a field near a river. But by the time she'd found her camera, hoping to capture a picture of the elusive creature, it was gone.
Miller isn't the only person who claims to have seen a mountain lion in Lodi. City officials canvassed the Lodi Lake Nature Area after a visitor believed they spotted a mountain lion Monday evening.
