Mountain Lion Breaks Through Window of Home Filled With Taxidermy Trophy Heads

Mountain Lion Breaks Through Window of Home Filled With Taxidermy Trophy Heads


If you live in mountain lion country and have taxidermy trophy heads within view of a window you might want to pay attention to this. SF Gate reports a mountain lion broke through the exterior glass window of a residence in the San Francisco suburb of San Bruno early Tuesday. Police said in a statement it’s believed the animal was drawn into the home by several large game taxidermy trophy heads mounted on the interior walls.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife estimates 4,000 to 6,000 mountain lions live in California but the San Bruno Police Department called what happened Tuesday “out of the ordinary.”  Couldn’t tell you if the police department’s theory is valid but if you have deer head on your wall in front of window and there’s been cougar sightings in the neighborhood you might want to think about redecorating:

POLICE PRESS RELEASE:

DATE OCCURRED: 05/25/2021

On 05/25/2021, at approximately 12:20 am, a mountain lion entered a residence on the 200 block of Ross Way, San Bruno, by breaking through an exterior glass window. It is believed that the mountain lion entered the residence because of several large game, taxidermy trophy heads, mounted on the interior walls of the residence. The mountain lion exited the residence after it was scared off by the homeowner. After an extensive area check the animal was not located. There were no injuries as a result of this incident.

While mountain lion sightings are fairly common throughout Northern California, this type of incident is out of the ordinary and the San Bruno Police Department would like to offer tips to the public, courtesy of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife: Mountain lions typically pose little threat to humans, and generally avoid any human interaction. People who live in mountain lion habitat can take precautions to reduce their risk of encountering a mountain lion.
