Officials are cautioning residents to be alert after two mountain lions were found early Tuesday morning sitting on the front lawn of a home in Sierra Madre.

A resident reported seeing the two cats about 12:32 a.m. in front of a house on the 600 block of Camillo Road, said Sgt. Ruben Enriquez of the Sierra Madre Police Department.

The cats were still in the yard when officers arrived, but police scared them off by turning on their sirens, he said.

Wildlife encounters are common in the community, which lies in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains.

Enriquez said there have been several other mountain lion sightings in the last few months.”This is the first that I’ve had a report that we had two of them,” he said.

The mountain lions spotted Tuesday morning were “pretty big,” about 150 to 200 pounds each, Enriquez said.

Police advise residents who see a mountain lion in the area to stay indoors, make sure children and pets are inside and call the police.
