This is a low light in reporting... Mentions a Mountain Lion was killed (!) two weeks earlier...where...why...when (exactly)? Is there a correlation between the two? Years back a little boy was killed on Gaviota Peak trail (a few miles away) by a mountain lion and we are warned of just to keep our small pets inside? I don't find any significant mention in any other news outlets of the significant or any official forest ranger explanations. Also, was this a real sighting or just a large cat? There are people who are not going outside because of this report and I have no information to help relieve the anxiety for them.

Gaviota trail is in Santa Barbara. Santa Ynez trail is in Topanga, next to LA. Two hours away, not "a few miles."
