Caught on Camera: Mountain Lion Takes a Stroll on the Streets of San Francisco

During the Covid-19 quarantine, packs of coyotes have been seen in volume for the first time in years on the streets of San Francisco. Now, mountain lions are enjoying the same impunity during the Bay Area’s shelter-in-place mandate.

A resident was able to get a video of a mountain lion strolling through the city’s usually bustling Russian Hill neighborhood recently, showing a rare sight of an animal surrounded by developed cityscape. See the video:

Fernando Robles posted the video to Twitter, reminding residents to be safe when walking alone or with your pets at night.

There may be some reasons to be scared while walking through the streets of San Francisco at night, but no one would have guessed it would have been due to mountain lions and coyotes. What a weird year it’s been.
