Burbank Police sent out a community alert today about a second reported mountain lion sighting in less than a month in the Media City. The first occurred back on August 4, near Kenneth Road and Brown Drive. The second sighting late yesterday, was once again in the hillside area — this time, residents reported seeing the wild cat in the 900 block of Country Club Drive, according to the Burbank PD.
In both cases, the mountain lion sauntered back up into the hills without causing a problem, except rattling some nerves. But what about the next time? Are these predators, who are supposed to avoid humans, getting bolder? These are the logical questions that come to mind.
The Burbank PD’s community alert on this mountain lion sighting is posted on the Burbank City website here. It includes advice and precautions for dealing with mountain lions.
