It could be an African lion or maybe just a big dog.

Authorities in the Colorado Springs, Colorado, area are investigating reports of a roaming African lion.

One man even managed to snap some pictures of it.

But experts say the grainy photos could be of a lion or a big dog.

Even tracks from the animal are inconclusive.

Authorities say there are no reports of missing lions in the area.

The search was called off yesterday, when neither a lion nor a dog was found.

But deputies are asking people in the area to keep an eye out for anything big and suspicious.
