large cat siting

we have a very large cat prowling around our daughters home which is on the Cass Morgan county line. It has been spotted several times and its screams can be heard often and close. a few months ago it had two cubs nearby. Our daughter and grand daughter are a wee bit in fear everytime they are outside esp in the evening. what if anything can be done for their protection?

Thanks for the question. I need to ask a few of you to follow up. Do you have any photos of the cat or its tracks? Does it leave when it sees people, or does it stay close by? Have any neighborhood animals been attacked?
