A trace of mountain lion DNA was found in a blood sample taken from inside a Pescadero home where a dog was snatched last week, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife said.

 

The finding confirms reports that a mountain lion entered the home and took a dog off the end of the bed where the homeowner was sleeping, CDFW said Monday.

 

The homeowner contacted authorities at 3 a.m. on April 17, reporting that she had seen “a shadow of an animal” enter the room through the open French doors before her 15-pound Portuguese Podengo was snatched from the foot of the bed where she was sleeping with her child, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

 

Responding sheriff’s deputies reported seeing wet paw prints at the bedroom’s entrance; they didn’t find the dog.

Mountain lions aside, it'd be nice to live in a place where you can safely leave your outside door open at night!

Actually, we do. I leave the door open all the time at night so the cats can go in and out. I won't say where we live, though.

I am wondering in what universe a large cat can enter your home and take your dog off the end of your bed without:

 

1) Waking the dog, as dogs generally are very alert animals

 

2) waking the owners. I am not a particularly light sleeper but I think I'd be awake if there was a sudden movement at the end of my bed, a struggle etc.

There are youtube vids of large cats killing dogs where the dog is completely unaware even when the dog is awake and fully conscious. The cat sneaks up behind it, bites it's neck, dog goes instantly limp, no struggle, no sound, over in a couple seconds and gone in the blink of an eye.

Which is a shame. I'd be happy with a few less dogs fouling the streets and parks and annoying people with their needless yapping.

You don't? 

 

Most of NZ is OK with that outside the inner suburbs of larger cities and the wealthier suburbs burglars tend to target.
