Joseph Serna of the Los Angeles Times newspaper reported that residents in an Azusa neighborhood were told to stay indoors Monday morning after a mountain lion wandered into the area and prowled around several homes, police said.
The animal was first sighted before 7 a.m. in the 600 block of Virginia Ann Drive, where it jumped a residence's wall and climbed into the backyard, said Azusa police Officer Mike Bires.
"We have the mountain lion contained to the rear of the residence and we do have [California Department of Fish and Wildlife wardens] on the way," Bires said. "It's just hanging out."
Deborah Moore, 65, was among the first locals to see it. She was walking home from a neighbor's house when she spotted it from across the street, standing on her front yard.
