Barbara Miller used to routinely take her dog on evening walks by the river near her home — but not anymore. About eight to 10 weeks ago, Miller and some neighbors say they spotted a mountain lion roaming in a field near a river. But by the time she'd found her camera, hoping to capture a picture of the elusive creature, it was gone.

Miller isn't the only person who claims to have seen a mountain lion in Lodi. City officials canvassed the Lodi Lake Nature Area after a visitor believed they spotted a mountain lion Monday evening.

    Never fear.. The Calif Dept of Fish and Wildlife has you covered...."In the past, authorities had just two options - to monitor a mountain lion until it left the area on its own or kill it. The updated rules allow for a third way, the use of nonlethal ammunition such as pellets or beanbag rounds to drive the cats back into the wild.
    The department also plans to provide additional training on harmless methods of frightening cougars away from populated areas."
    So just be sure you have an ample supply of beanbags when you go out walking alone..http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/03/05/us-usa-cougars-california-idUSBRE92405T20130305
