Mountain lion sighting in Burbank prompts new alert

Burbank police issued another public safety alert Tuesday after residents reported seeing a mountain lion in a populated area.

The sighting was reported in the 900 block of Country Club Drive at 9:15 p.m. Monday as the lion was apparently heading back into the hills of northwest Burbank, police told the Burbank Leader.

Several mountain lions have been reported in the Burbank hills this summer, prompting warnings from officials to keep pet food indoors and to avoid hiking or jogging alone, especially at dawn or dusk, when the big cats are more active.

Earlier this month, Burbank police reported seeing a mountain lion walking among parked cars near Kenneth Road and Brown Drive.
