Per the California Department of Fish and Wildlife's website: Mountain lions live across much of California, including along urban-wildland interfaces where they hunt for deer and other animals. However, it’s rare to see a mountain lion because they are elusive creatures. If you do see a mountain lion or mountain lion cub, do not approach it or intervene. Sightings can be reported to the Paso Robles Police Department at 805.237.6464 or online at https://apps.wildlife.ca.gov/wir/incident/create
