Mountain lion spotted in Paso Robles

December 17, 2022


The Paso Robles Police Department has reported a recent mountain lion sighting on Vista Cerro Drive not far from the MB Golf Academy.

Shortly before 7 p.m. on Thursday, a resident reported seeing the lion. Police are warning the public to exercise caution when walking in the surrounding areas.

Mountain lions live across much of California, including along urban-wildland interfaces where they hunt for deer and other animals. However, it’s rare to see a mountain lion because they are elusive creatures.

If you do see a mountain lion or mountain lion cub, do not approach it or intervene. Sightings can be reported to the Paso Robles Police Department at (805) 237-6464.

Reporting cougar presence is a good idea, like white shark sightings, and neighborhood watch. Gives a heads up to watch the kids and domestic animals.

Do they report on gators like this in the south? This is why other states make fun of CA…

“Do they report on gators like this in the south?”

Yes they do

Imagine the outrage if the public safety agency in a area did not warn the public to a hazard discovered and some child, perhaps a tourist gets eaten.

Yes indeed they do.
