Possible Mountain Lion Spotted Near Rosemont Middle School

A La Crescenta resident saw a possible mountain lion run into several backyards and a storm drain near Glenwood Avenue and Franklin Street.

A La Crescenta resident reportedly saw a mountain lion Tuesday morning near Rosemont Middle School.

Here's what Patch reader Shawn White said via email: 

After dropping my son off at Rosemont this morning, a mountain lion ran across the street in front of me at Glenwood and Franklin at 8 a.m. He proceeded up along the canal to the north. I tried to get a picture of him, but he was moving quickly. 

White told Patch he reported the mountain lion about 8:45 a.m. to the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station, leaving his name and phone number with a deputy. 

Deputies were sent to the area to see if the animal was wandering but found nothing, said Sheriff's Lt. Angela Shephard told Patch. 

It is possible the animal could be a bobcat, since three were found in La Crescenta backyards earlier this month, Shepherd said. 

Residents are urged to call sheriff's deputies immediately if they see a mountain lion or bobcat, Shepherd said. 

The animal could be a bobcat, but the photo is too unclear to tell, Andrew Hughan of California Department of Fish & Game told Patch.

Everyone says how great mobile phone cameras are now but really? I bet this pic was taken with an iPhone. Yeah, it has high megapixels but the native camera app takes forever to open and focus, even from the lock screen. I know I'm off topic but it's the ONE thing about my iPhone that even with a faster processor and more memory, you still end up with pictures like this /:
