Living in Mountain Lion Country

As mentioned in a previous post, a neighbor on Canyon Crest had two mountain lions lounging in his backyard. They eventually moved on into Millard Canyon.

Mountain lions generally exist where deer are found. They are solitary and elusive, and their nature is to avoid humans. Here are some tips for living in mountain lion country:

Don’t feed deer; it is illegal in California and it will attract mountain lions.
Don’t leave small children or pets outside unattended.
Mountain lions are most active at dawn, dusk and at night.
Bring pet food inside to avoid attracting raccoons, opossums and other potential mountain lion prey.
