Stories of mountain lion attacks seem to be more and more frequent. 

The lion “appeared to be emaciated” and officials will do a necropsy Monday to determine whether it was sick or injured, Martarano said.

A 2002 wildfire in the area may have hampered the lion’s ability to find enough food, he said.

“Before the fire, (the area) was considered moderate to good mountain lion and deer habitat. The fire changed everything,” but the area had recently started to revive, Martarano said.

Increasing development, annual wildfires, and reduced hunting for the lions is just a bad mix.
