News, Mountain lion spotted ‘chilling’ near Brentwood Country Club : detailed suggestions and opinions about Mountain lion spotted ‘chilling’ near Brentwood Country Club .
A large mountain lion meandered into Brentwood on Thursday morning, spotted “chilling” under a tree near Brentwood Country Club, according to authorities.
Although the cat doesn’t appear aggressive, wildlife officials are trying to figure out the best way to return the animal to a more appropriate habitat, said Tim Daly, a spokesperson with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Daly said “wildlife conflict specialists” with the agency will determine how to get the mountain lion back to the “nearest suitable habitat.” He said the main concern is always public safety whenever such a predator enters communities.
“We urge people to do a really good job of protecting small children and small animals,” Daly said. “Keep your small pets inside, and I wouldn’t be out on a walk with a 2-year-old in that area … We want to make sure this goes as smoothly as possible.”
