East Bay Regional Park District Trailcam Catches Mountain Lion Cubs Playing


Spotted mountain lion cubs play on camera at Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park.

Yes, puma kittens do have spots, which help them blend in with grass, brush, and dappled sunlight for safety. The District maintains hundreds of wildlife cameras throughout Contra Costa and Alameda counties as part of an effort to evaluate the ecological health of the East Bay region.


In 2022, the Park District released NatureCheck, a report that documents the conditions and trends of indicator species within East Bay Stewardship Network lands. In keeping with their mission to preserve a rich heritage of natural and cultural resources, the Park District manages large swaths of habitat for the myriad of plants and animals that inhabit these lands, including these apex predator caught on camera at Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park.

Too cute.
But alas, they are wild animals and should remain so.
I pray that their range and habitat are far away from Earth’s parasites – humans.

This is a “feel good” moment to watch. Not worried about when they grown larger. Like the melody too.

Should plant them in the park adjacent to the Oakland Hills to control the deer population.

Like the Parks dept cares about animals, they shoot cats all the time! They are murderers.

SG January 21, 2023 - 7:58 AM - 7:58 AM

deer are beautiful but maybe control the human population!

They are not “playing” not enough cub to cub contact, no these cubs are definitely “frolicking” .

I’d just like to point out that if anybody finds my comment to be unworthy or just plain dumb, SG cleared the runway for me to land.
