Score one for the lions. Writer never saw one.
Last month, a Pacific Grove police officer on patrol spotted a lion just after midnight on Sunset Avenue near Congress Avenue, said Animal Control Officer Elizabeth Yeo of the city’s police department.
The animal was crossing Sunset, “stopped and looked and took off,” she said.
Hence my stakeout. It was part of my research to find out if the reports meant more mountain lions were wandering onto the Peninsula. Might the sight of the stealthy carnivores that are at the top of their food chain become more routine near our urban homes?
