The Allen County Sheriffs department responded to a report of a mountain lion on the Southwind Rail Trail just north of Humboldt just before 5 p.m. on Wednesday.
Sheriff Bryan Murphy said the department received a call from a woman who was bicycling south of Idaho Road.
She reported a creature with pointy ears and a long tail chasing her down the trail, Murphy said. We notified the Humboldt Police Department because they were closer. We arrived on the scene but we were unable to find anything.
