How did it get up there? Moun­tain lion perches atop power pole

Daily Trust - - DIGEST -

A moun­tain lion was spot­ted atop a 35-foot Cal­i­for­nia power pole near the aptly-named Cougar Buttes. Res­i­dents liv­ing near the power pole in the Lucerne Val­ley, re­ported they first spot­ted the moun­tain lion on the pole week­end. An­drew Hughan of the Cal­i­for­nia Depart­ment of Fish and Wildlife said the moun­tain lion may have been chased up the pole by a ri­val cougar, but a res­i­dent said the cat was made ner­vous by ex­cited chil­dren shout­ing at it from a Lucerne Val­ley Uni­fied School Dis­trict bus. Ruiz said the lion proved to be a dis­tur­bance for the birds perched on the pole and they squawked loudly at the in­truder. The lion later came down from the pole when no­body was around late in the night.
