VIDEO: Large Mountain Lions Seen Outside Sierra Madre Home

These two large mountain lions were caught on video as they lounged outside the front door of a Sierra Madre home.

This video comes from NBC Los Angeles, who has a full story on their website. The two mountain lions, reported to be somewhere between 180 and 200 pounds each, were spotted in the front lawn of a home on Camillon Road in Sierra Madre just before 1 a.m. on Tuesday.

These two lions are just too cool. :)

Please don't let Fish and Game kill them. By the way, there's the leg of a deer lying by the Angeles Crest Highway at the top of La Canada, a typical mountain lion visiting card.

These two look like animal reserve lions. They look too well fed. We have a great herd of deer in the Sierra Madre area and the mountains above. But these lions look great and very calm in the circumstances

Beautiful Mountain Lions. Would have loved to have seen them.

In light of Honestliam's post, I sent this to friends who have lots of past experience with wild and pet cougars in Idaho [he's a biologist and she's a wildlife vet]. Their view: Two young adults, too naive to have proper fear, not yet dinged by life and other lions, but not pudgy enough to be "kept". I would then surmise that they are siblings, not yet separated. The prior still shot, from Oct. 03, by Catherine Adde, seems to be an alltogether different animal, maybe younger. That's a lot of cougars for one small town.

Beautiful. I just drives home the point that we live in THEIR territory and we should live accordingly.

I've lived on this street for 32 years and all I ever get to see are pictures. I've seen lots of Bobcats, Bears, Foxes, Raccoons, Skunks and Opossums, but never a Lion. Maybe I'll get to see one sometime soon, now that we have a couple hanging around. We love the wildlife here in Sierra Madre.

My first thought was how beautiful they are!!

We must live with these magnificient creatures and protect them in every way we can. I want to say a personal thank you to the Sierra Madre Police in the way they handled this situation. You have my appreciation and respect! Thanks. Thats what sharing the mountain means..with caution..yes..but sharing and respecting these beautiful creatures.

I'm proud and pleased at the reaction of those living in our small town to these lions; we live in and near so much wildlife. How fortunate that we get to share the mountains, the nature, and what the world should be about with these magnificent creatures. By being responsible and careful, we can all live together and nobody has to get hurt.
