The police want to locate the pranksters who were caught on camera, but not because they are in trouble for doing anything wrong.

“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,” police said. “Thank you to the citizens who noticed the cameras. Your effort and sense of humor are greatly appreciated.”

No mountain lions were found, according to The Associated Press.
