Daly City Resident Has Close Call With Visiting Mountain Lion

A Daly City woman had quite a terrifying encounter in her backyard. Here’s more from KPIX TV in San Francisco:

On Monday morning, Laurie Golub came face-to-face with a cougar in her backyard. She said her dogs were barking at a tree in the rear of her Daly City home, which she thought was just another raccoon or cat.

“I noticed this big tail hanging down and I was like, ‘Oh, my God what is that,’” said Golub. “I looked right up and it was looking right down at me, the mountain lion. It was very scary. I screamed a couple things I won’t repeat, and I ran back inside.”

Daly City police warned residents to be cautious leaving their homes as they kept a close eye on the cougar with the help of a drone. The mountain lion was eventually spooked by the sound of a lawnmower and went into another yard.

KPIX also had video of the encounter.
