Mountain lion footprints found near school

A mountain lion is believed to have created a set of footprints found Sunday afternoon in the ballpark area of a Belmont middle school, according to officials.

Police responded to Ralston Middle School, located at 2675 Ralston Ave., around 12:30 p.m. after a citizen reported seeing tracks in the rear ballpark area of the school, officials said.

The tracks were located adjacent to the fence line on the south side of the school, but did not appear to be fresh, according to officials.
