The Bishop Paiute Tribal Council takes the current mountain lion situation seriously and is working with California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to determine some options to alleviate the mountain lion concerns on the Bishop Reservation.

Here are some safety tips:
• Bring pet food inside home
• Bring water sources inside
• Bring pets inside (during nighttime)
• Parents, watch children as they play outside (bring children inside at sunset)
• If you come across a mountain lion:
• Be loud! Make noise to try and scare the animal away.
• Look large! Stand up, wave your arms, and hold your ground.
• As a last resort, throw rocks or objects.
• Don’t run! Back away slowly facing the animal.
If you experience issues with the mountain lion, please make a report to Dan Taylor, CDFW at 760-937-
2226.
