Two mountain lion cubs make house call in San Luis Obispo

Two mountain lion cubs were caught on camera making a house call in San Luis Obispo Saturday morning. 

KSBY viewer, Liz Anderson, sent us security video showing two cubs coming up to her front door at 4:23 a.m. near Morro View Trail. The two looked around and one cub even jumped at the door.

They might look cute, fuzzy and harmless, but it's wise to stay away and not approach any cub if spotted. Mother mountain lions could be in the area, and they are known to be extremely protective and territorial around their cubs. 

The mother mountain lion was seen with just one of the cubs earlier this month. As you can see from this video and photo from Anderson, only the two cubs were roaming the area. 

Anderson contacted the Pacific Wildlife Care to ask about the two visitors, who confirmed the two looked like healthy cubs exploring the neighborhood. They don't handle mountain lions, however, so we reached out to Fish and Wildlife for more information, but we haven't heard back yet. 

So far, Morro View Trail is still closed, but no word yet on what authorities plan to do with the three felines. The report made earlier this month said Parks and Recreation officials were monitoring their behavior for future studies.

This story will be updated.
