SIERRA MADRE (CBS) — Two mountain lions were spotted outside a home in Sierra Madre Tuesday, triggering plans to issue a warning to residents.

A man spotted the big cats lounging on his neighbors’ lawn at 699 Camillo Rd. around 12:30 a.m., according to Sgt. Joe Ortiz of the Sierra Madre Police Department.

Responding officers chased the animals back into the woods, he said. No one was injured.

The Sierra Madre Police Department, the California Department of Fish and Game and the Pasadena Humane Society were working to develop a safety alert to area residents based on Tuesday morning’s sighting, Ortiz said.

The alert — similar to warnings about bears — will inform residents how to keep themselves and their property safe from mountain lions.

    keep your pets & small children indoors &/or within reach when you choose to make YOUR home in ANOTHER ANIMALS traditional habitat! & don’t complain when you see them in THEIR habitat that YOU DECIDED to INVADE, just back away, take a picture & count yourself LUCKY THEY STILL EXIST & that YOU WERE PRIVILEGED enough in your life to SEE 1 STILL ALIVE & IN THEIR NATURAL HABITAT! If you don’t like them so near your home, MOVE! THEY WERE THERE !st!

      Houses on Camillo have been there since the 60’s and mountain lions’ habitate is in the MOUNTAINS!!! Our “encroachment” is not driving them out of the mountains into the foothill communities. A battle of wits with people like you is like fighting an unarmed man. SCREAMING DOES NOT MAKE YOUR POINT MORE VALID…moron

    Duh, we encroach upon their habitat, then are shocked, dismayed, and panic when we see them on our lawns. I swear, people are really really stupid.

    Sounds like the Native Americans and the Europeans prior to their arrival.

    Government populated by Godless liberals who won’t rest until the animals have greater rights than humans are backing folks into a corner like we’re seeing all over the country. It is the height of idiocy to encourage predators capable of killing you or your kids into these neighborhoods, and then mandating we all be disarmed. The animals are clueless. What’s really sad is when the humans are also……… some we see on these boards.
