A mountain lion caught on surveillance video took one Pine Mountain Club homeowner by surprise.
Video shot outside Randy Bauer’s Pine Mountain Club home shows a mountain lion going up the steps of his home early Friday morning at around 6:30.
He sent the video to 17 News Tuesday night.
Bauer, a Pine Mountain Club resident for six years, says he “jumped out of [his] skin” when he saw the big cat on video.
Bauer said he and his neighbors are used to seeing gray foxes, raccoons — even bears — but it was the first time he’d seen a mountain lion in the area.
Bauer says he wants people to be alert of their surroundings especially in areas with wildlife nearby.
