Living Amongst Wildlife

Mountain lion crossing backyard at night

As you may have seen on social media or in the news, there have been many recent wildlife sightings in populated areas. From mountain lions strolling through neighborhoods, to bears crossing roadways (and even getting hit by cars), we’re seeing a lot more animal activity than normal. This is potentially due to this season’s wildfires and the drought, and the onus is on us to be mindful that these animals live all around us. We should all be taking reasonable precautions, like securing our garbage and recycling bins, bringing our pets in at night, and knowing the basics of how to respond if you were to encounter one of these animals. (For example, if you encounter a mountain lion, make yourself seem as large as possible, make noise, and act defiant). Here are more great tips on what to do in encounters with mountain lions and bears. Check out the Resource Conservation District of Nevada County for more tips, or reach out to Agricultural Commissioner Chris de Nijs for information on wildlife conflicts with livestock at 530-470-2690 or agdept@co.nevada.ca.us.
