didn't this happen 2 years ago? What's the big deal? I saw a mountain lion in my back yard a few weeks ago, called Fish and Game and they told me it was probably a ferral cat. I knew it wasn't, it had a tufted tail and it was screaming like a crazy person. Plus, people see them in the Grocery Outlet parking lot in Placerville all the time. It is common knowledge that you can't walk out at night unless you want to get mutilated like a woman did five years ago in Auburn Lake Trails while she jogged on a trail. Also, a man in Grass Valley got chewed on the head as he slept in his sleeping bag. Naturalists pooh poohed it as not really an attack, what was it? Kitten play? the cat I saw wasn't going away and he didn't look like he wanted to share his dinner either, he looked like he wanted to make me his dinner. Fact is, mountain lions have become too plentiful in California because deer have overbred and our food chain is all out of balance. they are protected so they are just licking their chops and smirking. In Washington, you pay $15 for a license to hunt them and they don't seem to have the problem we have. People being afraid to walk at night, and mothers being afraid to let their children play in their own back yards.

Mountain lions may enjoy antifreeze.

Spam? Clueless? Nuts? What part of my statement is untrue? Google Auburn Lake Trails and Mountain Lion Attack, same thing with Grass Valley. Now check with a biologist about their take on the situation. Then come back to me. If you report a mountain lion sighting in Placerville, you are laughed out of the room. There are so many. Most residents have seen a mountain lion. Which is a lot more than I can see from any of you in Pleasant Hill. I grew up in PH, and heard about them being seen in Briones. I once saw a deer leg on the trail, only to find it gone 30 minutes later when I walked back. Where did it go? Hmmmmm. If you are afraid to throw out your trash, what do you do? Carry a rifle in one hand a Glad Bag in the other? I have a friend who is a game warden and he has tracked cougars with his dad since he was a youngster. He is dead serious when he says that a mountain lion will sneak up on you and attack. They are sneaky, just like your house cat will pounce on your unsuspecting leg if he gets the notion.
