UPDATE– THE MOUNTAIN LION HAS BEEN FOUND AND RELEASED BACK TO IT’S HABITAT.
Be mindful while walking your pets outside that there is a mountain lion wandering around SF. 🐾 After dark, it is especially dangerous!
“It’s highly unusual behavior for mountain lions who are normally very avoidant and shy. One thing I noticed from the two videos is that this is a young sub-adult so it is not an adult lion. So most likely it came from the open space South of San Francisco where we have been tracking mountain lions and their movements for the last several years,” said Zara McDonald, a biologist with the Bay Area Puma Project.
