Kim Parigoris: 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
