Mountain lions hunt primarily at night and feed on deer, rodents, birds and other wild animals. Occasionally, they will opportunistically feed on unprotected pets, sheep and goats. Reports of mountains lions approaching homes are not rare as human settlements continue encroaching upon their space.

Its been my experience that mountain lions would much rather a human never see or potentially interact with them. It's easy to forget, but other animals are very much aware that we are the top of the food chain and can kill them. Of course urban lions may act differently than what I experienced. Source: grew up in the national forest in the southern US. Edit: typo.

They don’t really come after people. The mountain lion wanted to eat the cat, not the person

They’re not going to bother you when there’s much smaller and easier prey

This is a really good reason not to feed deer just to feel like a Disney princess.

If deer start hanging around your house for that free meal all the time, mountain lions will start looking for them there.

Mountain lions also like to use access roads to travel around, so keep that in mind when hiking or joggin in areas where they've been seen.

I saw a huge mountain lion on my way home after visiting my parents years ago by the high way. I was the only one on the road, stopped abruptly and when I looked back, all I saw then was the tail.

A month before, I picked up a hitch hiker on that same road and gave her a ride to where she needed to go. I wonder how many people traveled at night, got attacked, and then was never heard from again.
