Padding along atop the border fence near Naco, a mountain lion was spotlighted by a Border Patrol officer recently.

Posted on Facebook by the Arizona Game and Fish Department, a photograph shows the big cat making its way along the top of the border barrier, some 15-20 feet up.

Officials didn't indicate which side of the border the mountain lion eventually leaped down on, or whether it was carrying documents.

@TucsonGirl,

I’ve seen bobcats galore just on the edges of the city, but once encountered a mountain lion just west of Greasewood, hiking up a trail behind the Tolson Elementary about a decade ago.
