BOX ELDER (AP) - Extra precautions were taken after a mountain lion was spotted roaming near schools in Box Elder.

Douglas School District officials kept students off the playgrounds Thursday and Game, Fish and Park personnel were called to the area. Supervisor John Kanta tells  KOTA-TV officers will remain on the scene until Friday morning. If the lion is spotted again it will be euthanized.

Kanta says relocating the animal is not an option because it would likely return to the same area. The lion was spotted on school security video about 5 a.m. Thursday.
