Mountain Lion Pulls Dog Away From San Luis Obispo Women; CDFW Hopes To Trap, Relocate Cat

A scary and sad moment for a dog walker in San Luis Obispo, whose pet was taken by an attacking mountain lion. Here’s more from TV station KSBY on how California Department of Fish and Wildlife hopes to recapture and relocate the cat:

San Luis Obispo resident Alysha Periera says she was walking her dog, Cupcake, near Laguna Lake Mobile Estates Sunday around 5:30 p.m. when the lion attacked, knocking Periera off her feet and dragging her dog away from her.

Ken Paglia with fish and wildlife says they are attempting to capture the mountain lion and after a medical assessment, if it’s deemed healthy, they will put a collar on the mountain lion and relocate it to a “suitable habitat” in a remote area of San Luis Obispo County.

Fish and wildlife says it’s possible the mountain lion is the same one seen in the area over the past two months.
