Mountain Lion spotted in an orchard at Ladera and Ladera Ranch Road, near Thacher and Carne – around 10am Sunday morning. It appears to have attacked overnight. It got into a 5 foot stock-fenced horse corral and killed and pulled out a 70 pound goat overnight Saturday 2/15. This is in a residential area on Thacher Rd in the East End.
Local agencies are on site, but we’ve been told by Fish & Game that they are just waiting for it to leave – because if they tranquilize it and move it they can only take it 20 miles anyway.
Please encourage people in the area – walking, running, biking – to use great caution and keep animals close.
