A dog was reportedly attacked by a mountain lion early Tuesday morning at the same Burbank hillside backyard where a mountain lion was spotted earlier this month, authorities said.
A resident was awakened at 4:30 a.m. by loud yelps, and found one of his two Rhodesian Ridgebacks injured, said Burbank Animal Shelter Supt. Brenda Castaneda. The resident, who lives in the 1000 block of Hamline Place, then reportedly saw a mountain lion on a hill behind the wall of his backyard.
Information on the dog’s injuries or her current condition was not immediately available.
After 11 a.m., the shelter received three other reports of possible mountain lion sightings. At least one was suspected to have just been a bobcat, Castaneda said. When air support surveyed the area Tuesday morning, however, officers saw only deer, she added.
