San Jose, CA - 27 Jan 2005: Lurking Mountain Lion Shot In Subdivision

The mountain lion was the third Santa Clara County mountain lion that wildlife officials or police officers have shot to death in the past year. Apparently this same 80-to-90 pound lion was responsible for killing a goat a day before being shot, about 30 yards from a home. (Thanks to AAF Correspondent Mike Phillips for the tip on the goat killing.) San Jose Mercury-News link.
