Bobcat Spotted in Burbank After Mountain Lion Warning
The bobcat was spotted around 9:15 p.m. Thursday walking near cars and homes in the foothills along the 800 block of Country Club Drive.
Burbank police issued a public safety alert Tuesday after residents along the 900 block of Country Club Drive reported seeing a mountain lion.
According to wildlife officials, this was the fifth reported mountain lion sighting this summer in the Burbank-Glendale area.
California Department of Fish and Game officials say residents should keep pet food indoors and avoid hiking or jogging alone, especially at dusk and dawn, when the mountain lions are most active.
Rangers say if you spot a big cat, instead of running away, stand up straight, raise your arms, make noise and throw rocks or sticks at the animal.
Any sightings should be reported to Burbank police at (818) 238-3000.
