See how Sonoma County mountain lion kittens are doing now

Two of three mountain lion kittens being recorded by researchers at a preserve in Sonoma County have survived to four months. The Audubon Canyon Ranch research team videotaped two of the kittens from a distance earlier this year when they were 10 days old. The den was found in the Glen Ellen-Kenwood area of Sonoma County. The cubs are the first offspring found as part of the study. Now the kittens are four months old.

Watch this mountain lion casually cross the Foresthill Bridge

While on an early morning call to the Foresthill Bridge last week, Placer County Sheriff's officers caught this video of a mountain lion strolling across the bridge. Luckily, the lion crossed safely and didn't cause any accidents or injuries. Sound effects were added for humor by the sheriff's department.
