• Mountain Lion Spotted on MPC Campus

    A mountain lion was spotted by MPC Security at about 10:20 p.m. on Thurs., Dec. 19 at the Russell Hansen Bridge on the MPC campus.  The mountain lion looked to be about 100 lbs and upon the encounter, it  ran off into the ravine area.  Monterey Police Department responded to the scene and the CA Dept. of Fish and Game were also notified.

    Please contact MPC Security at 646-4099 or the Monterey Police Dept. non-Emergency 646-3914  to report a sighting of this nature.  In the event that you should encounter a mountain lion within close proximity, it is advisable that you make yourself appear larger, gather your children and pets; do not run or turn your back unless you are a safe distance away.

    Note: More than half of California is mountain lion habitat. Mountain lions generally exist wherever deer are found. They are solitary and elusive, and their nature is to avoid humans.
