Climbs to new heights: Mountain Lion Telephone Pole

Climbs to new heights: Mountain Lion Telephone Pole, A photographer acted quickly and snapped a rare picture of a mountain lion perched on top of a telephone pole in a Southern California neighborhood Tuesday.

The mountain lion climbed the 35-foot high wooden power pole sometime Tuesday afternoon about 2 miles south of the appropriately named Cougar Buttes on East End Road, according to the Victorville Daily Press. A resident who lives across the street from the power pole told the Daily Press that the mountain lion was startled by children screaming on a school bus.

“They were yelling with excitement and the big cat scurried up the pole,” the Daily Press reported.

While mountain lions are not uncommon in the area, Department of Fish and Wildlife official Andrew Hughan told KTLA News that no one he had talked to had ever remembered seeing one on top of a utility pole before.
