Life in Idaho is arguably more enjoyable when we get warmer weather. Sure, winter offers a lot of amazing and unique experiences, but there is something special about the sunny and warm seasons in Idaho.

You can go on a hike, play outside with the kids, or take your dog(s) on a walk without having to worry about dirty slush or blistering winds.

Unfortunately, a danger lurks in Twin Falls according to Idaho Fish and Game.

Neighborhoods of Twin Falls, BEWARE!

It's that time of year, y'all. Mountain lions and back and they're creeping around Twin Fall neighborhoods.

"Over the last week, residents of Twin Falls have reported sightings of a mountain lion within city limits," Idaho Fish and Game said in a statement.

"Initial reports were in neighborhoods around Carriage Lane and Addison Ave. and more recently in the neighborhoods around Cascade Park and Stadium Drive."

It can be a scary experience for you, your kids, and your pets if you encounter a mountain lion. Idaho Fish and Game says that whatever you do, you should NOT turn and run as the mountain lion's instincts will be to chase you and obliterate you.

So, what should you do? Let's take a look at some tips.
