They don't know why it's out of tit's territory well duh since we can't hunt them anymore the population has exploded and they are coming down from the sierras following the river.

Maybe once a few more kids and hikers get killed they'll wake up and let us thin out the population a bit.

Hey at least they know what a Mountain Lion looks like. The Redlands Police shot a fat house cat at 60 yards thinking it was the 150 pound lion that they were after.

I saw a Mt. Lion while driving thru Ave 7 out to I-5. I thought I was seeing things but know for sure a cat isn't that big and muscular. It was prowling thru the orchards...no idea why or where it came from but that got my attention.

There is a family of mountain Lions living on the Cal campus near the Greek near the football field.
Last year they shot a mountain lion in downtown Berkeley.

They killed that cat not to far from you Doug on east Linwood Avenue. Watch out next time one of your kitties is going to bring a new friend over for dinner lol.

A farmer friend of mine took some pictures of this same cat (we believe) just a couple of month ago. It was in one of his walnut trees just down the road.
