Young Mountain Lion Causing Angst In Thousand Oaks

As the above video shows, a rather frisky young mountain lion is causing some stress for Thousand Oaks residents who have small pets. Here’s more from KTLA TV In Los Angeles:

“We hope it’s okay,” Kelly said. “We haven’t heard of any neighbors missing a cat yet, so hopefully he made it home.”  

The McGee’s and their neighbors live near Los Padres trail, a wildlife preserve. So, residents in these foothills are used to seeing all sorts of animals, including coyotes who routinely visit homes in the area.  

“We’ve been here since 1987,” Esther O’Connor told KTLA. “Basically, the only wildlife we’ve ever seen, up until I would say a couple of years ago, were birds and squirrels and racoons, but never a mountain lion.”
