Mountain lion believed to blame for recent deer kill

Pleasanton police are asking local people to keep their eyes open when walking, after it was determined Nov. 23 that a mountain lion took down a deer in the eastern part of the city.

No one saw the attack, but there have been sightings of mountain lions in the eastern part of Pleasanton, in the area between Mohr Avenue and open space behind the city's operation center at 3333 Busch Road.

So far, there have been no attacks on people or pets, but police are reminding residents that they could occur, especially in areas near open space. While they ask for people to exercise caution, any spotting should be called in to the Pleasanton police non-emergency number, 931-5100; call 911 if the situation is dangerous.
