UPDATE: Three bobcats are roaming La Crescenta while authorities aim to push them out, according to Sheriff's Sgt. Gary Ogurek of the Crescenta Valley Station.
"We understand it’s been three," Ogurek said. "They were on Pineridge, in the backyard of a resident’s home. It’s the area of La Crescenta where it says the sign 'Warning mountain lions have been seen in the area.'"
"The [bobcats] have been up there since the people have been up there..., Ogurek said. "Just keep pets inside and don’t let children go outside. You just have to be cautious. They are a predator."
7:13 p.m. Tuesday: Officials are using a helicopter to scare away bobcats wandering a La Crescenta neighborhood, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
The call came in about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday near Pineridge Drive and Rosemont Avenue, said Deputy Rachel Whittendurg of the Crescenta Valley Station.
