That's a Bad Kitteh: Two Mountain Lions Found on Sierra Madre Front Lawn
One homeowner looked out the window in the wee hours of the morning today to find a couple of friendly neighbors camped out on her lawn -- a pair of 200-pound mountain lions.
The cuddly kitties, who were spotted at around 12:30 a.m. on the 600 block of Camillo Street, stayed put for about 15 minutes before officers chased them back up into the hills, reports NBC Los Angeles.

“One 15-year veteran of our department said the two mountain lions were the biggest she’s ever seen in Sierra Madre,” said Sgt. Ortiz.
An alert has been issued to residents in the area.
