A Keene Ranch resident was surprised to find a family of mountain lions outside her home Tuesday (June 9).

Silvia Johnson looked out her window on Tuesday and saw a rare sight. A mother mountain lion and her three cubs were exploring the back yard.

According to Colorado Parks and Wildlife, mountain lions are loners and don't travel with other cats, or in packs. That's what makes this sighting so special.

Additionally, Colorado Parks and Wildlife Website described how

​​Mountain lions are generally calm, quiet, and elusive. They tend to live in a remote, primitive country with plentiful deer and adequate cover. Such conditions exist in mountain subdivisions, urban fringes, and open spaces. Recently, the number of mountain lion/human interactions has increased.
