Tonight: Community meeting on mountain lions

 

A community meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. tonight (April 13) on mountain lions, growing concern over increased sightings, and the recent shooting of a mountain lion in the residential area of Redwood City.

The meeting, which is expected to last two hours, will be held at Sequoia High School's Carrington Hall, 1201 Brewster Ave. in Redwood City. Admission is free.

Wildcat conservationist Zara McDonald, executive director of the Felidae Conservation Fund and co-founder of the Bay Area Puma Project, will give a talk about current research on mountain lions in the Bay Area.

The meeting will include researchers, conservationists, local law enforcement, elected government officials, and representative of the California Department of Fish and Game.

"The purpose of this assembly is to address the concerns of the local community, dispel common misconceptions about mountain lions and also to explore alternative solutions to future public safety events that are almost a certainty, as humans choose to live near increasingly fragmented wildlife habitat areas," the Felidae Conservation Fund said in a press release.
