Watch: Mountain Lion Hides Behind Bush as Woman Jogs By

By author of The Realblog with Stephanie Mallory

The footage of the big cat was captured by a home security camera in Ojai, California

A woman jogging through a neighborhood in Ojai, California, was fortunate to have escaped unharmed when she unknowingly jogged past a mountain lion that was hiding behind shrubbery just a few feet from her. 

Home security footage that has been posted on YouTube shows the moment the mountain lion slinks through the home’s front yard and crouches behind the shrubbery as the woman passes by.

Little information has been shared about this footage. We don’t know who the woman is or if she was ever made aware of how close she came to the deadly predator. 

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife estimates 4,000 to 6,000 mountain lions live in California.
