N.H. Fish and Game officials are looking for hard evidence to confirm a report that one of their staff members spotted a mountain lion in Barnstead, which could go down as only the fifth such sighting of the predator in the past 60 years in the Granite State.

Cynthia Seligowski of Brentwood said she has little doubt such an animal is roaming the area as she is sure she saw one of the big cats sitting on the front lawn of her Middle Road home last Saturday.

“I was sitting in my living room in the rocking chair and out he came. It had the body of a lion. I knew it wasn’t a dog [and] his markings were beautiful on his face,” Seligowski said.
