Cougar Sighting In Pleasant Hill Wednesday


Officials in Pleasant Hill say a mountain lion was spotted about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday in the area of Edna Drive and Marguerite Avenue.

Contra Costa County Animal Control has been advised of the sighting. If you happen to see a mountain lion do not turn and run from the animal, back away and dial police as quickly as possible.


    • About 20 – many of them quite good. We still want to see a real cougar in the wild though, the four-legged kind.

  1. I was wondering when the cougars would come for the turkeys! I’m talking mountain lions and bird turkeys of course. Time for some population control!

    • We happen to agree with you, Dallas, but the messaging came from the police/city officials and that is their recommended course of action.
