(KSHB) — Police in Gardner, Kansas expected their trail cameras to take photos of coyotes, foxes and raccoons. They got something much different.
Officers were contacted about a mountain lion possibly being in the area of Celebration Park. Police said they put out two trail cameras to check for activity.
“It’s not impossible for there to be a mountain lion in this area because there have been reports in the past,” said Gardner police Lt. Lee Krout.
They posted on Facebook that they didn’t see a mountain lion, but they did see a coyote, a raccoon and other wildlife. They were surprised by some of the images the cameras took.
“Immediately made me laugh,” said Krout, who reviewed the trail camera pictures. “I immediately called a couple of other people in the room and said, ‘Hey you gotta see this.'”
They found multiple photos of people dressed in costumes in front of the cameras.
Here’s the entire Gardner Police Department Facebook post-
“Wildlife concerns: The Gardner Police Department was contacted recently about concern over the possibility of a mountain lion being in the area of Celebration Park. In an effort to determine if there was a possibly dangerous animal in the area we deployed two trail cameras to check for activity in the area. We are glad to report that over the time they were up we did not see a mountain lion. We were however surprised by some of the images that the cameras did take.
We have included a few of these images for your review. We now have another different concern. We are attempting to identify some of the wildlife and activity in these images.
We would like to sincerely thank the persons responsible as it made our day when we pulled up what we expected to be hundreds of pictures of coyotes, foxes and raccoons. Thank you to the citizens who noticed the cameras. Your effort and sense of humor are greatly appreciated. Gardner Parks and Recreation Celebration Park“
