NEWSLINK: Mountain lion spotted near hikers in Grizzly Peak area of Berkeley Hills

Big Cat - panoramio.jpgA mountain lion was sighted by two hikers in the Berkeley Hills on Saturday, according to a Nixle alert issued by UCPD on Sunday.

The mountain lion, which was spotted on a trail near Grizzly Peak’s Sign Post 2, was approximately 75 feet away from the hikers, according to the alert.

There have been several mountain lion sightings in the Berkeley Hills in recent years. On Friday, UCPD received a report of a mountain lion sighting Sept. 16 near Centennial Drive and Stadium Rim Way. The big cats hunt turkeys and deer as a major food source, and several carcasses of animals suspected to have been attacked by mountain lions have also been discovered in the hills as of late.
