A mountain lion has been seen in the Dove Canyon area. The animal was picked up on cameras operated at Starr Ranch Sanctuary.
Additionally, this past week Dr. Don Earl of Lido Animal Hospital treated a greyhound that survived a serious attack from a mountain lion that climbed into the backyard of a home in Dove Canyon. The Department of Fish and Game is aware of the dog attack and has tips on its website should you encounter a mountain lion.
Please be on alert. Keep small children and pets close by, and avoid jogging / hiking / biking on trails at dawn, dusk and at night.
