LOS ANGELES (AP) - A group of friends in a Los Angeles neighborhood say they were shocked when they recently saw a large mountain lion in the area.

KCAL-TV reports (https://cbsloc.al/1XLT0ng) that the group saw the large cat from their car in Hollywood Hills.

Jamie Hindlin says the mountain lion didn’t seem to be aggressive, but she reported the finding to authorities. She estimates its weight as more than 150 pounds.

She says she’s concerned about smaller pets in the area, including her small dog.

A well-known mountain lion dubbed P-22 has lived for several years in the nearby wilderness of Griffith Park and is occasionally seen in adjacent neighborhoods. The male lion gained wide fame when it was photographed at night with the landmark Hollywood sign in the background.
