Mountain lion spotted among parked cars in Burbank
August 5, 2011 | 1:00 pm
Burbank police officers on Thursday reported seeing a mountain lion walking between parked cars near Kenneth Road and Brown Drive before it continued up Woodstock Lane and into the hillside, where it disappeared, the city reported Friday.
Mountain lion sightings aren't uncommon in the foothills and hillside areas in the heat of summer, when dry conditions drive some of the cats down into urban areas in search of food and water. They are typically skittish and avoid human contact, but city officials urged residents to keep pet food and water dishes indoors to cut down on temptation.
The mountain lion reportedly jumped an 8-foot high fence on Woodstock Lane before traveling into the brush and out of sight, according to the city.
Officials from California Department of Fish and Game issued several recommendations, including trimming brush, and keeping pets indoors at dawn, dusk at night when mountain lions are most active.
Another warning in Burbank yesterday and now this ..
(I didn't know they were breeding and tracking them in the Santa Monicas).

Meh. We are living in (encroaching on) their world, - not the other way around. Just keeps pets in at night and watch young children. No biggy. it's how we've been doing it in the SFV foothills for over a century with no problems.

Remember MJ Reynolds. On January 8, 2004, while on a ride on a biking trail at Whiting Ranch, Mark was fatally attacked by a mountain lion.
The foundation that his parents started in his name donated 20 bicycles to the Boys and girls Club in Whittier. I helped coordinate it between the Foundation and the Boys and Girls club for poor and underpriviledged kids of the community, and set up a kids Crank Mob style ride. their faces and expressions while riding was one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen and they were all chanting F.U.N.! while riding the Whittier trail
MJR R.I.P. your legacy lives on!
