One Lion, No Tiger, One Bear - Oh My!
The animals are getting restless and two wild creature sightings were reported to the sheriff’s department overnight.
Lt. Mark Hershey said that a resident called Wednesday night around 8 p.m. when they saw a mountain lion in their backyard in the 20000 block of Celleste Place near Plum Canyon Road, but deputies responding found nothing.
Hershey said that another family called around 4:45 a.m. Thursday to report they’d seen a black bear walking northbound on Byron Place near Alton Way in Castaic. Responding deputies did not see the bear, but they were told by residents that it had run into the nearby hills.
