In case you weren't clear...we built in it's territory, no fence can contain it nor should it. The sheriff searching the area will not keep your favorite fluffy safe. Keep it inside. Teach your children what to do if they see predators, even the animal kind.

It's also a fact that mountain lions have been a protected species with no hunting of them allowed in Calif. That means their populations are increasing. Each animal calls a large swatch of land its own territory, and keeps other mtn. lions out. That means that the younger animals are pretty much forced to seek new territory, and that means places where houses are. At some point, hunting of them will need to resume.
