Mountain Lion Spotted Near School

An early morning sighting of an adult mountain lion and two cubs in Alta Sierra Friday near an elementary school has teachers on a heightened level of awareness. The cat spotted by resident Roger Bond was seen in his backyard around 4:30 AM. Bond noted that the mountain lion had apparently killed a doe and drug it across Wolf Creek where it was feeding with the young cats when he spotted them. Teachers at Alta Sierra Elementary School are taking extra precautions along with help from concerned parents.
Mountain lion attacks in California are rare with only 15 verified since 1890- most of them occurring since 1990. Six of those attacks resulted in a fatality.
