Mountain Lion Sightings
Original post made by Angela Hey on Jan 3, 2007
My husband, a biker, the jogger and I all saw the mountain lion as it crept up the hill.
We walked to the Alpine Inn then returned back up Alpine Road. On the way back another animal was seen - I said Miaow - and I've never seen a bobcat run so fast - it was about 15 yards from the fence in the same field where we'd seen the mountain lion.
As we were walking up Alpine we met a man who'd seen a juvenile Mountain Lion on Bear Gulch.
Another Westridge resident that I met at the gym said she'd had a deer head and ribs left in her driveway a couple of months ago.
This is the first time I'd ever seen a Mountain Lion in the wild - it didn't run away fast as I expected - instead it kept staring at us - we saw it for about 10 minutes before it disappeared over the horizon.
So be careful if you have small children or dogs - keep them in your sight.
