Mountain Lion Found Dead At Fremont School
(BCN) FREMONT A Fremont Unified School District employee received a very unusual greeting at work: a dead 80-100-pound mountain lion sprawled in front of an elementary school parking lot.

The animal appeared to have been struck by a vehicle near the school and apparently wandered onto Vallejo Mill Elementary School property where it died sometime between 6 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. Monday, according to Sgt. John Dauzat of the Tri-Animal Control services.

Dauzat said when officials inspected the mountain lion, serious external injuries were not apparent. "(It) was bleeding a little from its mouth, and one eye was ruptured," Dauzat said.

Dauzat speculated that the animal was heading for the Alameda County Creek, which runs through Fremont, and made a wrong turn. Dauzat said a car probably hit the cat, although no drivers have called the Police Department to report hitting a mountain lion.

"(The cat) could have been hit at night, and the driver didn't know it was a mountain lion," Dauzat said.

Mountain lion sightings in Fremont are rare, although the carnivorous cats are sometimes lured to the city by deer or the creek, Dauzat said.

Dauzat said the last mountain lion sighting in Fremont was over six months ago.

The California Department of Fish and Game advises anyone who encounters a mountain lion to convince the animal you are not prey by raising your arms to try to appear large, throwing stones, branches or whatever you can reach without crouching or turning your back on the animal and speaking slowly and firmly in a loud voice.

The Vallejo Mill Elementary School is located at 38569 Canyon Heights Drive in Fremont.
