There’s a good chance you and yours are about to be dinner for some very big cats.
Or at least your pets might be.
This because mountain lions are hunting closer to your city than previously thought.
A new study from the University of California Los Angeles tracked 26 mountain lions around the Santa Monica Mountains and found that not only were they hunting closer to developed areas but that two of them actually killed prey inside developed areas.
Other findings from the report state that females are more likely to hunt closer to humans with most killing a mile or less from human habitat.
This onslaught of kitties is probably because mountain lions are protected in California and can’t be hunted. This has led to an explosion of cats and to, of course, cats entering human areas.
Can’t have your cake and eat it too California.
Allow hunting or deal with killers in your backyard.
