Officials are cautioning residents to be alert after two mountain lions were found early Tuesday morning sitting on the front lawn of a home in Sierra Madre.
A resident reported seeing the two cats about 12:32 a.m. in front of a house on the 600 block of Camillo Road, said Sgt. Ruben Enriques of the Sierra Madre Police Department.
The cats were still in the yard when officers arrived, but police scared them off by turning on their sirens, he said.
Wildlife encounters are common in the community, which lies in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains.
