BURBANK, Calif. (AP) - Police are warning residents to keep a close eye on pets after a mountain lion snatched a pet poodle from the backyard of a Burbank hillside home.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/1EYnyYu ) that the mountain lion was spotted Saturday in the backyard where it took the pet before disappearing into the hills behind the home.

Police warned residents to be on alert and to follow preventative measures, such as trimming brush to reduce hiding places for mountain lions, installing motion-sensitive light around homes, keeping pet food inside, not feeding deer and keeping pets indoors at dawn, dusk and night, when the cats are most active.
