If you have reason to believe a mountain lion has attacked livestock or a pet (for example, if you see pawprints around the carcass), call Pacific Wildlife Care.
- Do not allow pets to run free — for their own protection and for the protection of the wild animals on which they might prey.
- Never leave pet food outside.
- Restrict use of birdseed to discourage the rodents that visit the feeder.
- Trim and clear near ground level any shrubbery that provides cover for mountain lions or prey.
- Use fencing to help deter mountain lions. Augment your existing fencing with outwardly inverted fencing, hot wire, etc.
- Actively discourage visitations by making loud noises.
- Keep chickens, rabbits, livestock in well protected areas at night. Strong gauge wiring is a necessity in protecting animals.
- Battery operated flashing lights, tape recorded human noises, scattered moth balls and ammoniasoaked rags strategically placed may deter mountain lions from entering your yard.
